Little Shop of Horrors
A deviously delicious Broadway smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. When fumbling floral assistant Seymour discovers a new and unusual breed of plant, the foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune… as long as Seymour keeps feeding it BLOOD. Determined to win the heart of the beautiful Audrey, Seymour finds himself thrust into an adventure filled with murder, romance, and mayhem.
Performances of Little Shop of Horrors will take place at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets for this production will go on sale in Summer 2022. Check back soon for more details!

Preparing for the Audition:
Please prepare 16-32 bars of a song of your choice that reflects the style of this musical. We are eager to hear you show off your voice and your ability to tell a story. You are welcome to sing from the musical. Bring sheet music and an accompanist will be provided.
You will be taught a very short dance sequence with a few other auditioners. No preparation necessary for that.
To audition, you will need to complete two forms using the one link below. The first is an audition form, which gathers important information about each actor. The second form is a sign-up time for the audition you will attend. You will need to complete both forms before you can audition. We recommend filling out this form on a desktop or laptop computer.
- Please make sure that you have clicked “submit” on both forms. You may need to return to your audition form and submit it after signing up for an audition time.
- Please list all schedule conflicts on your audition form. We must have all conflicts at the time of audition. Think of everything that might interfere with rehearsals: vacations, family commitments, work or other obligations. Any conflicts that come up later or are not listed on the form will have to be negotiated with the director.
