A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek 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 and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
All those cast in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS are required to become a KVTA member at some level (minimum $28) by a certain date during the rehearsal process. One parent being a member of KVTA does cover the membership requirement for all family members 17 and under. Memberships paid during the 2023-2024 season will also fulfill this requirement. Failure to complete this requirement will result in the cast member being removed from the cast.

Shy, a bit clumsy, unsure of himself but does right by his people. Meek. He started life as an orphan on Skid Row but was taken in by his current boss Mr. Mushnik. Taking care of plants and learning about them are his joy. He is likable and well-meaning, but his naïveté often gets him into sticky situations. Strong actor and singer.
Kind-hearted, a dreamer. She is stylish and attractive and uses her beauty more as a means of survival. She has a warped sense of self-worth from a painful past, but it does not define her. A life lived in Skid Row has not tarnished her ability to dream a way out of a desperate circumstance. Strong acting and singing; comedic timing skills a plus.
A struggling flower shop owner with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. Nosy, father figure to Seymour. Brutally honest and hard on his employees. Profit-driven. Beneath his rough exterior is a man just trying to survive and who truly cares about Seymour and Audrey. Strong character actor with some singing.
Audrey’s Dentist boyfriend. He is arrogant, self-satisfied, and abusive. Handsome and can light up a room with his toxic charm. Constantly asserting his masculinity and abusing power in attempts to maybe hide his own vulnerability. His sickness lies in deriving pleasure in causing things pain and abusing nitrous oxide. Strong character actor and singer who can also deliver a comic edge.
The Plant (Audrey II) Male or Female
A non-speaking puppeteer (experience not required) who manipulates various stages of the plant as it gets bigger. Strong physical acting skills and the ability to portray character and emotion purely through movement. Has stamina to operate the large, heavy final puppet.
Please contact the Director, Jordyn Clark, at email@example.com if interested.
Voice of the Plant (Audrey II)
Actor/vocalist located offstage. Larger than life, their voice carries wondrous weight and presence. Foul-mouthed. Smooth, Sweet-talking and street smart. They ooze the rhythm and blues. The Plant is very persuasive and excels at getting what it wants. Strong character actor and singer. Has excellent funky R&B vocal chops.
Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon aka The Street Urchins
Street-styled girl group with infectious energy and confidence. They are the light and soul of Skid Row who can sing well and know it. They are the no-nonsense driving force of the story; essentially a funky Greek chorus who comment on the action and have the strongest grip on reality. Strong harmony singers with excellent movement skills that can synchronize well within a group.
Includes roles such as Mr. Bernstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip, Patrick Martin, Radio Announcer, Customers, Winos
