Audition bookings for MCMT’s November Production of “Little Shop of Horrors” are now open.

The ‘Information Pack’ contains the key information relevant to prospective cast members, such as rehearsal information, production details, audition requirements, and character information. To watch a recording of the Information Night held on March 26th, watch here (link is to a video file on DropBox).

Key Audition Information:

When: Saturday, April 15th & Sunday, April 16th 2023

Where: Hawthorn Church of Christ (42 Angas Road, Hawthorn SA 5062)

Audition Requirements:

Auditions are booked as 15-minute individual slots. If you are planning to audition for more than one principal/lead character, we recommend you book a double-slot so that you do not feel rushed (please book adjacent timeslots in this case). We recommend you complete the ‘Audition Application’ form ahead of time.

For your audition, you will need to:

1. Prepare and preform a song of your own choice.

You may choose a song from the show (preferred), or a song in the style of the show (e.g. 1906s rock and roll, doo-wop, early Motown) that suits the character you wish to audition for. Please choose a song no more than 3 minutes in length. You should refer to the ‘Information Pack’ for vocal ranges. You will need to bring your own backing tracks to your audition, either on a USB or on your phone so it can be played via a Bluetooth speaker.

Suggested songs from the show, per character:

  • Seymour: Grow For Me, Suddenly Seymour
  • Audrey: Somewhere That’s Green, Suddenly Seymour
  • Audrey II: Feed Me (Git It!)
  • Orin Scrivello: Dentist
  • Mr. Mushnik: Mushnik and Son
  • Crystal, Chiffon or Ronnette – The Urchins: Little Shop of Horrors
  • Ensemble: Don’t Feed The Plants, Skid Row (Downtown)

2. Run dialogue.

Dialogue material will be made available on this page from Saturday, April 8th (a week out from auditions). Copies will also be provided at auditions, so you do not need to memorise the material but please ensure you are familiar with the dialogue relevant to the character you are auditioning for. There will be a reader present in the audition room to help run dialogue.

(link will take you to a DropBox folder where you can access the dialogue pieces relevant to the character/s you wish to audition for)

3. Learn a short movement piece before you enter the audition room.

Our Dance Captain will teach you a short movement piece before your audition, so please aim to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes earlier than your booked audition slot to ensure you have enough time to learn this piece. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes for this purpose – our choreographer will be looking at rhythm, musicality, style and characterisation.

What else do you need to know?

  • When completing the ‘Audition Application Form’, please be open with us about any dates that you are unavailable for rehearsals, since we will do our best to plan the rehearsal schedule around cast availability/unavailability. We suggest that you bring this form filled out (and with a recent headshot/photo attached) to your audition.
  • Please make sure you are vocally warmed up before you enter the audition room.
  • We require all successful cast must be at least 18 years of age by bump in (i.e. by Sunday, October 29th 2023).
  • Please give yourself plenty of time to get to your audition on time. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes earlier than your booked time so you have time to learn the choreography piece, but also ensure you have enough time for parking, to warm up, and to sign in and fill out your ‘Audition Application Form’ (if you haven’t completed it prior).
  • While our preference is to conduct face-to-face auditions, we welcome you to contact us to discuss video options if you are unable to attend an audition in person (e.g. because of illness/needing to isolate or travel/holiday plans). We can be contacted via email at
