LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
People of any or no gender identity may be considered for any roles they wish to audition for.

AUDREY - Bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like, secret love of Seymour's life. She has poor self-worth and education, but incredibly good looks and a sweet and vulnerable demeanor. Vocal range: G#3-D5.
MR. MUSHNIK - The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour's nosy boss. He is profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative. Vocal range: G2-F4.
ORIN SCRIVELLO (The Dentist) - An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour. Vocal range G2-G4.
THE PLANT (Audrey II) - Puppet. An anthropomorphic cross between a Venus flytrap and an avocado, the plant has an appetite for human flesh that is appeased by Seymour. Puppeteer doubles as other sizes of the plant as well as understudies for the principals.
VOICE OF THE PLANT - An actor/vocalist located offstage. The voice is that of a conniving, street-smart 'villain.' A funky Rhythm and Blues voice is best. Vocal range G2-G4
