Please, prepare 16-32 bars of a song that not only shows your range but that you also enjoy singing. There will also be a dance and cold reading portion to the audition. Rehearsals will begin in early February. I hope to find a unique group of performers who will bring new life to this story and add a nice twist of heartfelt drama. I want these characters to be portrayed as real, genuine, people as opposed to comic book characters. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, Hammondeggz1@gmail.com
Seymour – Range: A2 - G4. An insecure, put-upon florist's clerk. He is a genuine, well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills.
Audrey - Range: G#3 - D5. 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 - Range: G2 – F4. The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour's nosy boss. He is profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative. Who would open a flower shop on Skid Row?
Orin Scrivello - Range: G2 – G4. An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour. This actor will portray various other salesmen, shoppers and scheisters.
Street Urchins – Three part harmony singers. Street urchins, acting as the occasional Greek Chorus. Young, hip, quick witted, and smart, these three are the only ones who have a grip on reality. I am willing to consider a male in one of these roles and I am not looking for a specific race.
**The role of the plant, Audrey Two, has already been cast. **
