We are now holding auditions for Shrek the Musical JR! Casting kids Ages 10-18 who love to sing, act, and dance and have a flair for performing! Youth ages 10-18 have the incredible opportunity to learn from a dedicated team of professional instructors. Children and youth are given instruction in the theatrical and performing arts in a structured group environment with access to performances on a professional stage. Each production will have a set rehearsal schedule and a live stage performance at the end of the session.

About The Show

Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
