Auditions for Little Shop of Horrors
A skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers “Audrey II” – an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon, Audrey II grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, singing carnivore, offering fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite. The ending is not to be missed!

ROLES:?
?

?Seymour – Male; Tenor
Insecure, naïve, put-upon florist’s clerk. Sweet, well-meaning, shy and awkward. But he is our hero!
?

??Audrey – Female; Mezzo-soprano or Soprano
Seymour’s co-worker in the flower shop. Not well educated, a bit of an airhead with very low self-esteem. Also true of heart and sweet.

??Mushnick – Male; Baritone (though a Bass or Tenor would be fine.)
Owner of the failing Skid Row flower shop. Jewish, middle class New Yorker.

?
?Dentist (Orin) – Male; Baritone or Bass
?[Dentist and Mushnick usually re-appear during "The Meek Shall Inherit" as different characters, often in drag.]. Audrey’s egotistical, insensitive, abusive, sadistic, dentist boyfriend.
?

The Plant (Audrey II) – Baritone or Bass; preferably able to sing “soulful” or “jazzy.”?

?
??Female Trio – Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon – Soprano, Mezzo-soprano, and Alto (who sings what harmony is flexible.) These roles require three ladies with a GOOD sense of pitch.?
?
??CHORUS: Residents of Skid Row, bums, customers,?????????? etc.
