Kentwood Players Announce Auditions
Kentwood Players will hold auditions for the comedy rock musical “Little Shop of Horrors” with book by Howard Ashman and music and lyrics by Alan Menken, on Saturday, July 13 from 11 am to 4 pm and Sunday, July 14 from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Callbacks will be on Monday, July 15 from 7 pm to 10 pm at the Westchester Playhouse, 8301 Hindry Avenue, Westchester.

The production is directed by Michael-Anthony Nozzi, with Musical Director Joshua Eli Kranz, and produced by Shari Barrett and Sheridan Cole Crawford by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
“Little Shop of Horrors” is based on the 1960 science-fiction film by Roger Corman about a hapless florist shop worker named Seymour who raises a man-eating plant he calls “Audrey II.” The music, composed by Alan Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop, and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown),” "Somewhere That's Green,” and "Suddenly, Seymour.” The musical was also made into a 1986 film of the same name, directed by Frank Oz.
Please come to the auditions prepared with headshot and resume, and 16 bars of a song that will show off your range (both vocal and acting), preferably a song from “Little Shop of Horrors” or rock song in the same vein. Bring sheet music, accompanist will be provided. For further information, please contact the production team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
