LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS premiered on May 6, 1982 at the Workshop of the Players' Art Theatre. It then opened off-Broadway at the Orpheum Theatre in New York City's East Village on July 27 of the same year. The production was directed by book writer and lyricist Howard Ashman and starred Lee Wilkof, Ellen Greene, and Ron Taylor. It closed on November 1, 1987 with 2,209 performances under its belt. When propositioned for a Broadway transfer, Ashman elected not to, claiming the show was perfect for where it was. The musical also had its West End premiere at the Comedy Theatre, produced by Cameron Mackintosh. It ran for 813 performances from January 1, 1983 to October 5, 1985 and starred Barry James and Ellen Greene (reprising her role from New York).

AUDREY Bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like, secret love of Seymour's life. She has poor self-worth and education, but incredibly good looks and a sweet and vulnerable demeanor. Female, 25-35 yrs old Range: G#3 - D5

CRYSTAL, RONNETTE and CHIFFON African-American street urchins, acting as the occasional Greek Chorus. Young, hip, and smart, these girls are the only ones who have a grip on reality. Female, 20-35 yrs old Range: Ab3 - F5

MR. MUSHNIK The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour's nosy boss. He is profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative. Male, 55-65 yrs old Range: G2 - F4

ORIN SCRIVELLO An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour. Male, 30-40 yrs old Range: G2 - G4

SEYMOUR KRELBORN An insecure, put-upon florist's clerk and eventual hero. He is a genuine, well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills. Male, 25-35 yrs old Range: A2 - G4

THE PLANT (AUDREY II) Puppet. An anthropomorphic cross between a Venus flytrap and an avocado, the plant has an appetite for human flesh that is appeased by Seymour. Puppeteer doubles as other sizes of the plant.

VOICE OF THE PLANT An actor/vocalist located offstage. The voice is that of a conniving, street-smart 'villain.' A funky Rhythm and Blues voice is best. Male, 20-50 yrs old Range: G2 - G4
