PRINCIPAL CHARACTERS
SEYMOUR:Our insecure, naïve, put-upon, florists’ clerk hero. Above all, he’s a sweet and well-meaning little man. Earnest and kind. Strong acting and singing.

AUDREY: If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn, removed their education and feelings of self-worth, dressed them in spiked heels and a short black dress, and then shook them up in a test tube to extract what’s sweetest and most vulnerable – that’d be Audrey. Strong acting/comedy and singing. Must have strong mix and belt.

MR or MRS MUSHNIK:  Seymour’s boss. A failure of an East Side florist. His accent, if (s)he has one, is more that of middle-class New York than of Eastern Europe. (S)He seldom smiles. Strong character actor.

ORIN: A tall and handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and cruel tendencies. He is not, however, a leftover from the movie version of Grease. Think instead of an egotistical pretty-boy – all got up like a greaser but thinking like an insurance salesman and talking like a radio announcer. Strong character actor and singer.

VOICE OF AUDREY II: Provided by an actor on an offstage microphone, lip-syncing to the movements of the puppets. His voice is a cross between Otis Redding, Barry White and Wolfman Jack. Think of the voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving villain – Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard the Third. Strong character singer. VOCAL RANGE: BARITONE/BASS

CRYSTAL, RONNETTE and CHIFFON: A group of ‘street urchins’ who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus commenting and narrating the action. They’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the whole cast who really know what’s going on. In their “Greek Chorus” capacity, they occasionally sing to the audience directly. And when they do, it’s often with a “secret-smile” that says: “we know something you don’t know.” Strong harmony and dancing skills a must.

FEATURED ROLES
DOO WOP BACK UP: As we are presenting the 2004 Broadway revival there is constant harmony throughout the show. We will be utilizing a small group of back up DOO WOP singers to join Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon throughout the show.

THE PLANT (AUDREY II): An anthropomorphic cross between a giant Venus flytrap and an avocado. It has a huge, nasty-looking pod which gains a shark-like aspect when open and snapping at food. The creature is played by a series of four increasing large puppets, manipulated by one non-speaking Puppeteer hidden invisibly inside. The plant grows from a few inches tall, to almost filling the stage. The role requires someone with physical acting skills to portray character and emotion purely through movement, and stamina to operate the large, heavy puppet.

ENSEMBLE: We will be looking for an ensemble to appear in various scenes and numbers. Our production will take place inside a movie theatre allowing us to feature the ensemble in new ways throughout the entire show including the following numbers: SKID ROW, DA-DOO, YOU NEVER KNOW, CLOSED FOR RENOVATION, DENTIST, CALLBACK IN THE MORNING, FINALE.
