A deviously delicious sci-fi smash musical and one of the longest running off-Broadway shows, Little Shop
Of Horrors charmingly tongue in cheek comedy has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" -
after his co-worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B singing carnivore promises unending fame and
fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, blood. Over time, though, Seymour
discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

Seymour Krelborn Male 25-35
Vocal range top : G4 / Vocal range bottom : A2
A nerdy, insecure, put-upon florist's clerk and
eventual hero. A genuine, well-meaning man who is
taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and
poor social skills.

Audrey Female 25-35
Vocal range top: D5 / Vocal range bottom : G#3
Bleached-blond, ditzy, secret love of Seymour's life.
She has poor self-worth and education, but incredibly
good looks and a sweet and vulnerable demeanor.

Mr. Mushnik Male 50-65
Vocal range top : F4 / Vocal range bottom : G2
The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower
shop and Seymour's nosy boss. He is profit-driven,
greedy, and manipulative.

Orin Scrivello Male 30-40
Vocal range top : G4 / Vocal range bottom : G2
An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and
sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, who
is targeted by Seymour.

Voice Of Audrey II Male 20-50
Vocal range top : G4 / Vocal range bottom : G2
An actor/vocalist located offstage. The voice is that of
a conniving, street-smart 'villain.' A funky Rhythm and
Blues voice is best.

Crystal / Ronette / Chiffon Female 20-35
Vocal range top : F5 / Vocal range bottom : Ab3
American street urchins, acting as the occasional
Greek Chorus. Young, hip, and smart, these girls are
the only ones who have a grip on reality and really
know what’s going on throughout.

Luce and Skip Snip) We will need approximately 3
additional company members to play a variety of
