CASTING FOR:

Seymour: mid-20’s. Insecure, naïve, put-upon, florist’s clerk. A sweet and well-leaning little man.

Audrey: Secret love of Seymour. If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn, removed their feelings of self-worth, add spike heels and a low-cut black dress, then included what’s sweetest and most vulnerable – that’s Audrey.

Mr. Mushnik: Their boss. A failure of an East Side florist. His accent, if he has one, is more that of middle class New York than of Eastern Europe. He seldom smiles but often sweats.

Orin: A handsome dentist with sadistic tendencies. Think of an egotistical pretty boy – dressed up like a greaser but thinking like an insurance salesman and talking like a radio announcer. Also plays A Voice not unlike God’s, Wino #2, Customer, Radio Announcer, Mr. Bernstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip and Patrick Martin.

The Plant (Audrey Two) Puppeteer who manipulates 4 increasingly large puppets. Also plays Wino #1.

Voice of the Plant: Think of the Voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving villain – Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard III. Male or Female.

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon: Three women street urchins who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus outside it. Young, hip, smart, and the only ones who really know what’s going on.
