Cast List Preface
Welcome to the Cast and Crew Page for
As director, I understand that many students play sports and participate in after-school activities. I want to ensure that every student that would like to be part of this amazing experience, has that opportunity. As such, I will work closely with your coaches, tutors, teachers, etc., to put in place a rehearsal schedule that allows you to continue participating in those activities as well as the musical.
- On this page, you will find important links explaining the audition process, rehearsal schedules, rehearsal tracks, parent roles, and more.
- If you have any questions about the show, please feel free to contact me directly at Walzaher@gbtps.org
- Please remember that callbacks are only for students who I need to hear more from. Getting a callback (or not getting one) means nothing in regards to if you received the part you wanted. I haven’t made up my mind about some parts (lead and ensemble) and I need to hear more from certain students. Be prepared to sing 1 song of your choice and read for a bunch of different parts on callback day, after school.
Full Synopsis of 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.
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.
