Disney’s “Shrek” features an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists rescue – not to mention a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and more than a dozen fairy tale misfits.

Newcomers and experienced actors (grades 1 through 12 and adults) may drop in at any time during audition hours and need not prepare for the process. Participants are asked to bring a recent photo to auditions; all other materials are supplied.

Audition materials and audition information are available on the Youth Theatre’s website.

A free audition workshop scheduled for Tuesday, August 14 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Costick Center, provides an opportunity to learn the songs and dances before the formal audition process. No pre-registration is required.
