Granbury Opera House (133 E. Pearl Street, Granbury, Texas 76048)


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 (BROADWAY VERSION) Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.


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.
Gender: Male | Age: 25 to 35 | Vocal range top: G4 | Vocal range bottom: A2

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.
Gender: Female | Age: 25 to 35 | Vocal range top: D5 | Vocal range bottom: G#3

Mr. Mushnik – The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour’s nosy boss. He is profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative.
Gender: Male | Age: 55 to 65 | Vocal range top: F4 | Vocal range bottom: G2

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.
Vocal range top: G4 | Vocal range bottom: G2

Orin Scrivello – An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey’s abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour.
Gender: Male | Age: 30 to 40 | Vocal range top: G4 | Vocal range bottom: G2

Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon – Street urchins, acting as the occasional Greek Chorus. Young, hip, and smart, these girls are the only ones who have a grip on reality.

Ensemble – The inhabitants of the Skid Row neighborhood.
