Youngstown, OH (June 23, 2023): The Youngstown Playhouse has announced auditions for the production of Little Shop of Horrors. Open auditions will be held on July 10th and 11th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the Moyer Room at The Youngstown Playhouse.

The sci-fi smash musical Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years. When naming a new breed of plant after his work crush, meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn starts to discover the terrifying truth about his newfound fame. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop of Horrors was brought to life by the creative geniuses Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin).

Seeking adults 20 years of age and older to fill the roles of Seymour, Audrey, Mr. Mushnik, Orin, Crystal/Ronnette/Chiffon, Voice of Audrey II, Puppeteer of Audrey II, and Ensemble. Those auditioning should be prepared to read from the script, prepare a song that showcases their vocal range, and provide their own tracks. Light movement may also be required, so dress comfortably. The Youngstown Playhouse is committed to an inclusive casting process and encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and abilities to audition.

The creative team is led under the direction of Robert Dennick Joki (Director and Costume Designer) and includes Tyler Stouffer (Music Director) and Caitlyn Santiago (Stage Manager). Rehearsals are tentatively set to begin on Monday, August 14. Technical rehearsals will occur the week of September 18, and performances will take place September 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and October 1.

Auditions will take place in The Moyer Room inside The Youngstown Playhouse at 600 Playhouse Lane, Youngstown, Ohio. More information is available at
