Character Breakdowns:

Seymour: A sensitive, kind- hearted young man who cares deeply about those around him. He can take anything dished his way, but gets fired up if he sees someone else mistreated. He is a comic but, not a clown. He should sing and act well.

Audrey: A na├»ve, broken, and sensitive gal who although she looks trashy, lives with a heart of gold. She is the only one who doesn’t realize how good she truly is here. She needs to sing very well and be a great comedienne.

Mr. Mushnik: A failed business man who takes Seymour in not out of kindness but, out of necessity. He speaks with a European accent of some sort and should be good with comedy.

Dentist: A not so smart medical professional who enjoys pain; especially giving it. Must be a good actor who sings well. He is a throw back to the greaser type.

Chiffon, Crystal, Ronnette: The greek chorus who know exactly what is going on even if the other performers do not. Excellent singers who must dance very well. Hip, smart, funny and engaging.

Audrey Two: A giant man eating plant with a penchant for human blood. Actually, she is four puppets operated by one actor. The actor should have a

Good comic sense and know some miming. The puppets lip synch to another actor providing the plant’s voice.

Audrey Two Voice: A soulful and rich voice provided by an excellent singer. They should have a good sense for comedy.

Customer/ Patrick Martin: One actor who plays two roles. Will also help with background vocals and puppet work.

Skip, Mrs. Luce, et al. : One actor who plays several roles quickly in succession . The actor should be a good comedian and a good chameleon.

There are several backstage positions to fill as well as a need for extra puppeteers.
