Shrek, The Musical JR is based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig; it is produced with special permission from Music Theatre International (MTI). In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who've been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking Donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task - if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn't be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way.
A person need only attend one audition unless contacted for call-backs. Please be prepared to sing an excerpt of a song a cappella, read from scenes of the script (provided), and a short dance that will be taught at auditions. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Please, no sandals.
Show dates are 7:00 pm on June 10, 11, 17 & 18, 2016 and 3:00 pm on June 12 & 19, 2016.
