The musical will feature a cast of 12-13 singer/actors with 8 featured roles:
“Girl Group” (3) – The Girl Group members are major characters in the show who serve as a “Greek” chorus of sorts. Need to blend and harmonize well. Age range 20s - 30s (or capable of playing that age range).
Audrey – Female lead. Sweet, naïve, with a strong voice. Love interest for Seymour. Erstwhile girlfriend of the dentist. Age range 20s - 30s (or capable of playing that age range).
Seymour – Nebbish “loser” whose life is transformed by Audrey II and his love for Audrey. Age range 20s - 30s (or capable of playing that age range).
Mushnik – Stressed, put upon owner of a failing flower shop on Skid Row. “Father figure” to Seymour. Age range 40s - 50s (or capable of playing that age range).
Dentist – A terribly narcissistic, misogynistic, comic character. Audrey’s abusive boyfriend, with two great songs, who meets a fitting end. Age range mid-20s - 30s (or capable of playing that age range).
Audrey II – This character plays the voice of the plant, and does not appear on stage. This is, however, a major role in the show, requiring comic acting skills and a strong baritone to bass voice. An excellent role, in spite of playing the role from off-stage. Age range – doesn’t really matter. It’s the voice and the acting that counts.
Ensemble (3-4) – The denizens of Skid Row -- derelicts, quirky characters, some small featured bits. Age range – “you name it.”
Please prepare your favorite musical comedy song for auditions. Songs from the show are allowed, but not required. Those auditioning will then be asked to do some cold readings from the script. Rehearsals will generally be Monday through Thursday from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Performance dates are November 10-13 and 17-19. We greatly encourage and welcome anyone who is interested in auditioning for this production.
