Synopsis
Floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-on-his-luck Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it…BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and its intent toward global domination!

Character Breakdown

SEYMOUR: Insecure flower shop clerk with an extensive knowledge of botany
AUDREY: Flower shop employee, Seymour’s secret love interest
MR. MUSHNIK: Seymour and Audrey’s boss, the owner of the flower shop
ORIN: A dentist with sadistic tendencies
THE PLANT (AUDREY TWO): This will be a puppeteer (or multiple puppeteers) who will operate the four versions of this increasingly growing plant. The largest puppet requires some physical strength and stamina.
VOICE OF THE PLANT: A street-smart, funky, conniving, villainous sounding voice, heard from a microphone offstage.
CRYSTAL, RONNETTE, and CHIFFON: Three Skid Row residents who function as participants in the action and as a Greek Chorus outside the action.
ENSEMBLE: Residents of Skid Row. May be singing or non-singing; dancing or non-dancing. Some members of the ensemble may play bit parts such as a flower shop customer, a reporter, etc. Others may be featured primarily in crowd scenes or song and dance production numbers.
