Director - Ray Flynt
Music Director – Dale Adams
Choreographer – Kathryn “Kitty” Serpe

All roles are open. No experience required. Those auditioning for singing roles should come prepared to sing a song that showcases your vocal range (sung acapella or with a karaoke track). We will read scenes from the show, and the choreographer will assess your ability to move, so please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. NOTE: We will also cast two puppeteers for the show, which are non-speaking roles, but essential to the storytelling.

Chiffon, Crystal, and Ronnette (F5 – A♭ 3) - Named after girl bands of the 1960s, they are a trio of female street urchins. We are seeking persons of color for these young, hip, streetwise performers who act as a “Greek Chorus,” and the only people in the cast who “really know what’s going on.” They sing (or provide backup) for 70% of the musical numbers.
Seymour(G4 – A2) – 20 s, the insecure, naïve, put-upon, florist’s clerk hero. A sweet and well-meaning man.

Audrey (D5 – G#3) – The bleached blonde secret love of Seymour’s life. Audrey works in the flower shop with feelings of low self-worth, yet full of dreams of what might be. She’s sweet and vulnerable.

Orin (G4 – G2) – A handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies. He is dating Audrey. This role requires a versatile actor who also portrays eight other characters including: A Voice not unlike God’s, Skid Row wino, flower shop customer, radio announcer, Mr. Bernstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip, and Patrick Martin.

Mr. Mushnik (F4 – G2) – Long-suffering owner of the failing Skid Row flower shop where most of the story takes place and a surrogate father to Seymour. 
Voice of Audrey Two (G4 – G2) – Seeking an actor with a resonant voice who, in concert with the puppeteers, can bring Audrey Two – the blood-seeking plant - to life. To quote the script, “his voice is a cross between Otis Redding, Barry White, and Wolfman Jack – a street-smart, funky, and conniving villain.” Aside from a brief onstage appearance as a Skid Row wino, this actor will mostly use an off-stage microphone.
Two (2) Audrey Two Puppeteers. Audrey Two is the name Seymour gives to the exotic, blood-hungry plant at the heart of the terror in Little Shop of Horrors. There are four versions of the plant, from the small innocuous one that Seymour first shows to Mr. Mushnik to larger ones capable of eating body parts and devouring people. Seymour manipulates version 2, but the others are operated by puppeteers who work in confined spaces and coordinate the movement of the plant with the performer providing Audrey Two’s voice. Persons who experience claustrophobia would not be a good fit for these roles. In addition to operating the plant puppets, these individuals will assist in revolving the turntable used in the production.
