Little Shop of Horror Auditions

Tupelo Community Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for its opening production of its 51st season, Little Shop of Horrors with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken.   The show has been nominated for more than 20 awards winning  11 including Best Musical Off Broadway.   A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years and is one of theatre’s favorite shows.   The story tells of meek floral assistant Seymour stumbling across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush.  This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD.  Over time, though, Seymour discovers “the plants” out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!   Those interested in auditioning should email director Tom Booth at 1tct@bellsouth.net before Monday August 10th for more information and to schedule a time.  This diverse cast calls for up to 10 members including three African-American roles and all will be asked to sing a selection from the show based on their voice part.   Show dates are expected to be in mid-October.   For more information visit the TCT website at www.tct.ms or call the TCT office at 662-844-1935.

Auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot


Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot on Sunday, January 26 at 2 p.m. and Monday, January 27th at 6 p.m. in the rehearsal hall of the Lyric Theatre in downtown Tupelo. 

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”  

Those auditioning should be adults at least 18 years of age.  Men’s roles range up to 60 years of age and women up to age 50.  Those auditioning should be prepared to read  from the script and sing.  Email 1tct@bellsouth.net for the music beginning Monday, January 13th.  

Christi Houin will direct and production dates for the show are April 23-25, 2020.  
For more information contact the director at 662-891-3157 or call the TCT office at 662-844-1935.
