About the show
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker 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!

An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey’s abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour.

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon are street urchins, acting as the occasional Greek Chorus. Young, hip, and smart, these girls are the only ones who have a grip on reality.

About the auditions
Please sign up for an audition on our Signup Genius page.
Please prepare 16 – 32 bars of a song in the style of the show no longer than one minute in duration. It does not need to be from a Musical as the style of this show lends itself to Pop/R&B. You must bring your own sheet music, and an accompanist will be provided by the theatre. Please do not perform acapella unless that is how the song you will perform was originally written.
The callback list will be posted on or before May 23rd on the Chameleon Arts & Entertainment Website.
Callbacks will be TBD.
