Seeking Roles for:
Seymour Krelborn: Lead, Male, 25-35 Vocal range: A2-G4; an insecure, put-upon, florists’ clerk who becomes the hero of the story; above all, he is a sweet, genuine well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills.
Audrey: Lead, Female, 25-35 Vocal range: sensitive belt, G#3-D5; the bleached-blond secret love of Seymour’s life, also employed at the shop; she has a damaged sense of self-worth and no education; she is vulnerable to a fault; think Judy Holiday in “Born Yesterday,” with a dash of Marilyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn.
Mr. Mushnik: Supporting, Male, 45-65 vocal range: G2-G4; middle-aged, old enough to “adopt” Seymour as his son; strong character actor with some singing; Seymour’s boss and father figure; he owns a failure of a run-down East Side florist shop; under a gruff and blustery exterior he cares about Audrey and Seymour; a good man at heart, but overcome by the temptations of wealth.
Orin Scrivello the Dentist: Supporting, Male, 25-40 vocal range: G2-G4; strong character actor and singer; Audrey’s handsome, dentist boyfriend, he is narcissistic, arrogant, and abusive to Audrey; in spite of all this, he is a charmer in a “bad boy” kind of way; must have a comic edge without going to caricature. This actor may also play other minor roles such as Radio Announcer, Mr. Bernstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip, and Patrick Martin.
Voice of the Plant (Audrey II): Supporting, Male (or Female), 18+ vocal range: G2-G4, rock, rhythm and blues style; open age; strong character singer; a sweet-talking, street-smart, rhythm and blues version of the devil; provided by an actor on an offstage microphone, lip-syncing to the movements of the puppets.
Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon: Supporting, Female, 18 – 30s, vocal range: three-part tight harmony, Ab3-F5; strong harmony singers with good movement skills; these three “street urchins” function as participants in the action (when they have dialogue) and a Greek chorus commenting and narrating the action (when they sing); they’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the cast who really know what’s going on, with a “we know something you don’t” attitude.”
