Cast Breakdown

Seymour Krelborn
Age: 25 to 35 Vocal range top: G4 Vocal range bottom: A2

An insecure, put-upon florist's clerk and eventual hero. A genuine, well-meaning person who is taken for granted because of clumsy ways and poor social skills.

Audrey
Age: 25 to 35 Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: G#3

Secret love of Seymour's life. Poor self-worth and education, but a sweet and vulnerable demeanor.

Mr. Mushnik
Age: 55 to 65 Vocal range top: F4 Vocal range bottom: G2

The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour's nosy boss. Profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative.

Orin Scrivello
Age: 30 to 40 Vocal range top: G4 Vocal range bottom: G2

An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive partner, targeted by Seymour.

The Plant (Audrey II Puppeteer)

Puppet. Has an appetite for human flesh that is appeased by Seymour. Puppeteer doubles as other sizes of the plant.

Voice of The Plant
Age: 20 to 50 Vocal range top: G4 Vocal range bottom: G2

An actor/vocalist located offstage. The voice of a conniving, street-smart 'villain.' A funky Rhythm and Blues voice is best.

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon
Age: 20 to 35 Vocal range top: F5 Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon are three African-American street urchins, acting as the occasional Greek Chorus. Young, hip, and smart, these kids are the only ones who have a grip on reality.
