Shrek the Musical

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who fines 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 on on hand… and his name is Shrek.

We will provide a weekly schedule with specific call times, but performers must be prepared to rehearse up to four days each week.

Cast List

Thank you to everyone who auditioned for SHREK! I was so impressed with all of the talent and it was very difficult to cast the show. If you did not get in this time, please consider taking one of our dance classes or another one offered at StarStruck. Theatre is really fun, but it also involves a lot of ups and downs- something that makes many actors not want to continue! We hope this will not be the case for you and your family. I sincerely hope to see you at another audition in the near future!

Please email: by Saturday September 29 to accept or decline your role. First cast meeting is Monday, October 1 at 6:30 at the StarStruck studio!
