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!

Seymour Krelborn

 

Gender: Male, Ethnicity: ANY, Age: 20s to 30s, Vocal range top: G4, Vocal range bottom: A2

 

An insecure, put-upon florist’s clerk and eventual hero. He is a genuine, well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills.

 

Audrey

 

Gender: Female, Ethnicity: ANY, Age: 20s to 30s, Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: G#3

 

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

 

Gender: Male, Ethnicity: ANY, Age: 40s to 60s, 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

 

Gender: Male, Ethnicity: ANY, Age: 30s to 40s, 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.

 

The Plant (Audrey II)

 

Puppet. An anthropomorphic cross between a Venus flytrap and an avocado, the plant has an appetite for human flesh that is appeased by Seymour. Puppeteer doubles as other sizes of the plant.

 

Voice of The Plant

 

Gender: ANY, Ethnicity: African American, Age: 20 to 50, Vocal range top: G4, Vocal range bottom: G2

 

An actor/vocalist. The Voice of the Plant will be visible in our production. The voice is that of a conniving, street-smart ‘villain.’ A funky Rhythm and Blues voice is best.

Ronnette

Chiffon

 

3 actors. Gender: Female, Ethnicity: ANY, Age: 20s to 30s, Vocal range top: F5, Vocal range bottom: Ab3

 

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.
