Character Descriptions:

Audrey – 20s-30s – The bleached-blond and statuesque secret love of Seymour’s life.  If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe and Goldie, removed their education  and feelings of self-worth, shook them up in a test tube to extract what’s sweetest and most vulnerable, and then dressed them in spiked heels and a low-cut black dress – that’s be Audrey -- Range: G#3 - D5

Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon – late teens to mid 30s – Three female street urchins who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus outside of it.  They should be as tough as their hairdos.  They’re young, hip, smart and the only people in the whole story who really know what’s going on.  In their “Greek Chorus” capacity, they occasionally sing to the audience directly – and when they do, it’s often with a secret smile that says: “we know something you don’t know” -- Range: Ab3 - F5

Voice of Audrey II (male or female) – Provided by an actor on an offstage microphone.  The sound (if male) is a cross between Levi Stubbs, Otis Redding, Barry White and Wolfman Jack (if female, think Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner or even possibly Janis Joplin).  Think of The Voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving villain – Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard the Third -- Range: G2 - G4 (if male) G3 - G5 (if female)

Seymour – 20s-30s – Our insecure, naïve, put-upon, florist’s clerk hero.  Above all he’s a sweet and well-meaning little man.  He is not a silly prat-falling nerd (although he is nebbishy and does fall down sometimes) and therefore should not be played as the hero of a Jerry Lewis film -- Range: A2 - G4

Mr. Mushnik – 50s-60s – Audrey and Seymour’s boss.  A failure of an East Side florist.  His accent, if he has one, could be that of middle class New York or vaguely Eastern European.  He seldom smiles but often sweats -- Range: G2 - F4

Orin – 30-40 – A tall dark handsome Dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies.  He is not however a leftover from Grease or Welcome Back, Cotter.  Think instead of an egotistical pretty-boy – all got 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 #1, Customer, Announcer, Mr. Berstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip and Patrick Martin) -- Range: G2 - G4

Puppeteer of Audrey II – any age – Audrey II is “played” by a series of four increasingly large puppets; the first, third and fourth bodies are manipulated by the puppeteer (who also play Wino #2 in the first scene.)  The plant is an anthropomorphic cross between a venus flytrap and an avocado.  It has a huge, nasty-looking pod which gains a shark-like aspect when open and snapping at food.  The first time we see the plant, it is less than on foot tall.  The last time we see it, it fills the entire shop.
