Description:

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Director's Vision Letter: 
Welcome to the fantastic fairy tale world of SHREK! Shrek is the story of a grumpy Ogre who is forced to go on an adventure to get his swampy home back from Lord Farquad. Along the way he finds friendship, love, and a new sense of self. This show is an excellent reminder that if we embrace our true identity, let our freak flags fly, and ignore what the world says of us, we will find our tribe and be loved for exactly who we are! 
Perhaps my favorite thing about this show is that there really is a place for everyone to shine! There is no age limit to being a fairy tale creature! Some roles, including Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Lord Farquad, and the Dragon will need to be portrayed by older students, but there are lots of opportunities for younger kiddos to have solos, speaking, or dance roles. Every student in the show will get to dance, but we will have a group of core dancers. Please prepare both a song and a monologue for auditions. You can split the time however you’d like, but we would like to see you both sing and act! 
I am so excited to spend this time with every cast member and their families. I pray our time together is fun, productive, and enriching for all involved! Together we can make something truly beautiful, all for the glory of our Awesome Creator! 

-Hannah Watson
