[NATHAN DETROIT] – Late 20s-Early 40s, All Ethnicities. Baritone up to high F. A rogue and a gambler but also a respected leader of his gang of ne’er do wells. Comedic and charming but a bit strapped for cash. A consummate businessman with divided loyalties. Adelaide’s fiancé.

[MISS ADELAIDE] – Late 20s-Early 40s, All Ethnicities. Mezzo to A. A showgirl with a heart of gold and a perpetual, psychosomatic cold. Easy-going, electric, comedic tour-de-force. Smarter than she’s given credit for. Very aware of how very long she’s been engaged to Nathan.

[SKY MASTERSON] – Late 20s-Early 40s, All Ethnicities. Baritone up to E-flat. Smart, charming, handsome gambler. Romantic leading man with a bit of an edge. Able to adapt to any situation but ready to reel off pre-prepared anecdotes regarding his view of the world. Despite his failings, Sky is immensely likeable and oozes style.

[SARAH BROWN] – Mid-20s-Late 30s, All Ethnicities. Soprano up to high A. Prim and proper Salvation Army officer. Has a hidden wild streak waiting to come out. An idealistic but sheltered missionary. Kind-hearted but like Sky, too categorical in her view of the world. Charisma, a natural beauty and a silky jazz voice are important attributes.

[NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON] – Late 20s-Late 40s, All Ethnicities. High tenor up to B-flat. Funny character guy, likeable and somehow sweet, comedic. An eccentric gambler and one of Nathan’s closest associates.

[BENNY SOUTHSTREET] – Early 30s-Late 40s, All Ethnicities. Baritone up to high G. Funny character man. Abbott to Nicely’s Costello. Must be and excellent dancer.

[HARRY THE HORSE] – Early 30s-Late 40s, All Ethnicities. Gambler; all talk and little action. Mouthpiece for Big Jule. Must be an excellent dancer.

[BIG JULE] – Early 30s-Early 50s, All Ethnicities. Imposing, tough gangster from Chicago. An intimidating hustler. Temperamental. A sore loser. Although not necessarily a large man, he has undisputed stage presence.

[ARVIDE ABERNATHY] – Late 50s-Early 70s, All Ethnicities. Lyric baritone. Salvation Army man and Sarah’s paternal figure. Kind, gentle, thoughtful. A reasonable old man with a warm heart that harbors only the kindest intentions, even if he tends to be a little gullible.

[GENERAL MATILDA B. CARTWRIGHT] – Early 40s-Early 60s, All Ethnicities. Mezzo. Business like and in-control, but ready to cut loose.

[LT. BRANNIGAN] – Early 30s-Early 50s, All Ethnicities. Non-singing. Member of the police force trying to stop the floating crap games; tries to command respect, but the gangsters don’t really play along.

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Tech begins: July 8th
Performances: July 12th - August 17th


[SEYMOUR]: MALE IDENTIFIED (mid-20’s to early 30’s) comic actor with surprisingly killer pop-rock vocal chops. Sings up to an A. A socially awkward and unassuming plant store employee totally overlooked by everyone until the two objects of his obsession (a man-eating plant and the store employee he loves from afar) set him on a path as the hero of his own story. He’s funny, sweet, surprisingly charismatic, and ultimately becomes that hero. SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

[MR. MUSHNIK] MALE IDENTIFIED (late 40’s-60’s) Mature character comic who sings. A middle- class New Yorker, he is a failure of an East Side florist. SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

[ORIN] MALE IDENTIFIED (30’s) An egotistical pretty-boy dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies. He is a cross between Elvis Presley, James Dean and a young Jack Nicholson. Very versatile pop rock voice with strong falsetto with broad comic skills. Also, somewhat of an SNL performer as he must also be able to morph into 7 separate characters throughout the course of the play. SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

[VOICE OF THE PLANT] Male or Female. A funky, street-smart, conniving villain. Must be a strong R&B/Soul performer adept at the vocal stylings of Aretha Franklin and/or Otis Redding. SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

[AUDREY] FEMALE IDENTIFIED (mid-20’s to early 30’s) Quirky comic actress with strong vocal skills and a belt that shakes the rafters. A cross between Judy Holliday, Marilyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn. A girl from the mean streets who dreams of somewhere that’s green...underneath the bleached blonde hair and tons of cleavage is an honest and heartbreaking sweetness and vulnerability. SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

[CRYSTAL, RONETTE AND CHIFFON] FEMALE IDENTIFIED (late teens to early 20’s to play teens) Girl Group singers in the style of The Supremes. Very strong ear/musicians for tight girl group harmony singing. Hip, fun and engaging! SEEKING ALL ETHNCITIES.

Director: Karen Azenberg
Rehearsals: July 1st, 2019
Tech begins: July 15th
Performances: July 18th - August 3rd
Seeking performers of all Ethnicities for all roles.

[ALAN] - 40’s Alan is a slick lawyer. Impatient. He can be callous and crude at times but ultimately oddly honest. Cannot stay away from his cell phone.

[ANNETTE] - 40’s Alan wife. She works in wealth management, poised and stable on the surface but on the verge of unhinging. She is clearly the primary parent in this marriage

{MICHAEL] - 40’s. Owns a wholesale company dealing in household goods. On the surface he is earthy, genial and a peacemaker. But he is far less refined, liberal, or easygoing than he first appears..

[VERONICA] - 40’s Michael wife. A writer, she is artistically cultivated, politically correct and "harmonious" on the surface. But very judgmental underneath.
