Calling all dramatics!
There will be an upcoming casting for anyone that is interested in being in the spotlight and performing in Arroyo High School's upcoming musical ..... Little Shop of Horrors.
Auditions will be held on Thursday January 26th after school in C-1 Ms. Jacob's room. If Thursday does not work out but you are interested PLEASE talk to Ms. Jacobs before the 26th to work something out. Also, be prepared to script read and sing as well.
The roles that you can audition for will be:
SEYMOUR (playing age of mid 20s) Our insecure, naïve, put-upon, florists’ clerk hero. Above all, he’s a sweet and well-meaning nerd. Strong acting and singing.
AUDREY (similar playing age to Seymour) The bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like secret love of his live. If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe, and Goldie Hawn, removed their education and feelings of self-worth, dressed them in spiked heels and a short black dress, and then shook them up in a test tube to extract what’s sweetest and most vulnerable – that’d be Audrey. Strong acting/comedy and singing.
MUSHNIK (middle aged? Old enough to ‘adopt’ Seymour as his son) This part can be played by either male or female. Their boss. A failure of an East Side florist. Strong comedic timing.
ORIN A tall, dark, handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and cruel tendencies. He is not, however, a leftover from the movie version of Grease. Think instead of an egotistical pretty-boy – all got up like a greaser but thinking alike and insurance salesman and talking like a radio announcer. Makes a couple of brief, but high impact, appearances. Strong character actor and singer.
THE PLANT (AUDREY II) An anthropomorphic cross between a giant Venus flytrap and an avocado. It has a huge, nasty-looking pod which gains a shark-like aspect when open and snapping at food. Male or Female
THE PUPPET The creature is played by a series of four increasing large puppets, manipulated by one non-speaking Puppeteer hidden invisibly inside. The plant grows from a few inches tall, to almost filling the stage. The role requires someone with physical acting skills to portray character and emotion purely through movement, and stamina to operate the large, heavy puppet.
CRYSTAL, RONNETTE and CHIFFON – (playing age of late teens to 20s) Three female ‘street urchins’ who function as participants in the action (when they have dialogue) and a Greek Chorus commenting and narrating the action (when they sing together in close harmony). They’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the whole cast who really know what’s going on. Think the Supremes meets Destiny's Child.
ENSEMBLE – we will be looking for an ensemble to appear in various scenes and numbers. The minor roles of CUSTOMER, DRUNK, RADIO ANNOUNCER, MR BERNSETIN, MRS LUCE, SKIP SNIP and PATRICK MARTIN.
FYI - If you are cast, there will be mandatory practice during spring break!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM HERE:
Sign up in C-1 Ms. Jacob's room.
Walk in auditions are okay as well!
If you aren't interested in being on stage BUT would still like to help out with props(scenery/scene design), being a stage manager, costume, set up people, ushers, sign up here.
If you have any questions feel free to scholloop me or Ms. Jacobs.
