About the Show


CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Seymour Krelborn- (Tenor) Mid 20’s. Our insecure, naïve, put-upon, florist’s clerk hero. Above all, he’s sweet and well-meaning. He is not, however, a silly, prat-falling nerd.

Audrey- (Belt) The bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like, secret love of Seymour’s life. If you took Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe, and Goldie Hawn, removed their education and feelings of self-worth, dressed them in spiked heels and a low-cut dress, and then shook them up in a test tube to extract what’s sweetest and most vulnerable- that’d be Audrey.

Mr. Mushnik- (Baritone) Their boss. A failure of an East Side florist. His accent, if he has one, is more that of middle-class New York than of Eastern Europe. He seldom smiles and often sweats.

Orin Scrivello D.D.S.- (Tenor-Baritone) A tall, dark handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies. He is not, however, a leftover from the movie version of Grease. Think instead of an egotistical pretty boy who got up like a greaser but who thinks like an insurance salesman and talks like a radio announcer.

Audrey II- (Baritone-Bass) An anthropomorphic cross between a Venus flytrap and an avocado. The 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. It has a huge, nasty-looking pod that gains a shark-like aspect when open and snapping at food. The creature could be played by a series of four increasing large puppets, manipulated by a puppeteer while The Voice of Audrey II is provided by an actor on an offstage. However, the director is also open to casting a live Audrey II who will be seen and heard on stage inside the pot.

Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon- (Mezzo) Three female street urchins who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus outside it. They’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the whole cast who really know what’s going on. They often have a secret smile that says: “We know something you don’t know.”
