Open auditions for Little Shop of Horrors – see below for further details.

Casting policy

Loft Theatre Company productions are cast by means of auditions open to all active members plus non-members (provided they agree to join as members before commencement of rehearsal, if cast).

Directors are free to contact whomsoever they wish in advance of an audition to invite them to read alongside others for a specific role, but any pre-casting must be done openly and must be approved by the Artistic Management in advance.

All casting considerations will be discussed between directors and members of the Artistic Management. Casting decisions will be notified to all those who attended the audition(s), and cast lists will be posted on the website.

Little Shop of Horrors
by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken

Director: Tim Willis
Musical director: Matt Flint
Production dates: 2–12 December, 2015 (main house)
(rehearsals commence in early October)

Audition: Sunday, 19 July
at 2.30pm at the theatre
(Coffee, registration and tours of the building for new members from 2pm)

Seymour Krelborn, a florist’s assistant, has his life turned around when he comes across an unusual plant after an eclipse of the sun. Naming the plant ‘Audrey II’ after the salesgirl who is his love, Seymour tries to grow the plant, to no avail... until he discovers its true diet: blood. As the plant thrives, bringing Seymour fame and fortune, the two strike a Faustian pact: Audrey II agrees to attract publicity if Seymour continues feeding it. Seymour, his boss Mushnik, Audrey and her abusive dentist boyfriend are swept into the plant’s evil machinations as its true motives become clear.

Based on Roger Corman’s film, Little Shop of Horrors took off-Broadway by storm with its offbeat humour and the show-stealing Audrey II, whose rhythm and blues numbers never fail to bring down the house.

‘From the deafening opening chords matched with a startling blackout of the house lights, the audience knows they are in for a real treat.’ – The Stage

A cast of five male actors, four female actors, one hungry plant and a small ensemble is required (age unimportant, although credibility will need to be maintained).

The audition process will consist of a group song and acting workshop, which will be followed by individual singing slots.* Please be prepared to stay all afternoon if required.

* If possible, please prepare two short, contrasting pieces of your choice. You may not necessarily be asked to perform both, but ideally should be prepared to do so if required. Please ensure you bring sheet music with you.

Please contact Tim Willis on 07818 032752 or email ad@loft-theatre.co.uk for further details.
