Auditions for Little Shop of Horrors

CP Theatre Auditions for Little Shop of Horrors

CP Theatre will hold auditions for Little Shop of Horrors on August 26 & 27 at 7:00pm in the Tate Hall of the Overcash Performing Arts Center. You do not have to be a student in order to audition.

“Little Shop of Horrors,” the delectable sci-fi horror musical with an electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. Synopsis: Seymour Krelborn is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after the coworker he secretly loves. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive for world domination

Auditions will consist of a prepared song of 16 to 32 bars with sheet music in the correct key. Be dressed to move. No preparation necessary or appointment necessary.

We are looking to cast approximately 20 performers ages 16 to 60+. Age ranges listed are those of characters not necessarily those of the actor playing the role. All ethnicities are encouraged audition.

Roles

Seymour Krelborn – Male 25 -35 strong acting and singing; vocal range: A2-G4; an insecure, put-upon, florists’ clerk who becomes the hero of the story; above all, he is a sweet, genuine well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills.

 

Audrey – Female 25 – 35 , strong acting/comedy and singing; vocal range: sensitive belt, G#3-D5; the bleached-blond secret love of Seymour’s life, also employed at the shop; she has a damaged sense of self-worth and no education; she is vulnerable to a fault; think Judy Holiday in “Born Yesterday,” with a dash of Marilyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn.

 

Mr Musnik – 45 -65, middle-aged, old enough to “adopt” Seymour as his son; strong character actor with some singing; vocal range: G2-G4; Seymour’s boss and father figure; he owns a failure of a run-down East Side florist shop; under a gruff and blustery exterior he cares about Audrey and Seymour; a good man at heart, but overcome by the temptations of wealth.

 

Orin Scrivello, Male 25 -40, strong character actor and singer; vocal range: G2-G4; Audrey’s handsome, dentist boyfriend, he is narcissistic, arrogant, and abusive to Audrey; in spite of all this, he is a charmer in a “bad boy” kind of way; must have a comic edge without going to caricature. This actor may also play other minor roles such as Radio Announcer, Mr. Bernstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip, and Patrick Martin.

 

Voice of the Plant (Audrey II), 18+ , open age; strong character singer; vocal range: G2-G4, rock, rhythm and blues style; a sweet-talking, street-smart, rhythm and blues version of the devil; 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.

 

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon, Females 18 -28, vocal range: three-part tight harmony, Ab3-F5; strong harmony singers with good movement skills to perform tight choreographed movement; seeking all ethnicities for these characters; these three female “street urchins” function as participants in the action (when they have dialogue) and a Greek chorus commenting and narrating the action (when they sing); they’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the cast who really know what’s going on, with a “we know something you don’t” attitude.

 

Ensemble Males and Females 18+, there will be an ensemble of strong singers/actors to appear in two or three numbers in the show; they portray various people on the street, bums, and florist shop customers and other characters.

There may be a cast meeting on Thursday August 29th at 7:00pm.

Rehearsals will begin on September 8th at 2:00pm. Normal rehearsal schedule is Sunday afternoon from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and Monday – Thursday evenings 7:00pm to 9:30pm.
