ages of 8 and 19
“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.
All those between the ages of 8 and 19 are invited to try out for this hilarious tale! Auditions will be held April 4th from 10-12 & 2-4 and April 5th from 10-12 Please be prepared to sing approximately 1 minute of any musical theatre song.
