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
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.
