Shrek The Musical
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.
"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
Auditions for this production are available by appointment only on October 22 from 3-6pm. Callbacks will be October 24 from 3-6pm. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of a song for your general audition. Please bring accompaniment on a CD or saved on an electronic device. Please do not rely on YouTube for your accompaniment, and do not bring a track with lead vocals on it. Please make sure to review all roles in the show and the production calendar prior to signing up for auditions. Audition slots tend to fill quickly, so do not delay in booking your time.
