Kids Dancer Auditions for "Shrek" The Musical Jr.

South Boston, VA, United States
ID: 567518Exp: 5/14/2024

Audition for "Shrek" The Musical Jr. for ages 5-18. Please see the details below. About the project: 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. Additional info: You will also learn a movement combination and read from the script. Production dates are July 18-21. If interested, please apply.

36 roles

StorytellersBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Wonderful roles for performers with natural stage presence and big, clear voices. These characters are important for setting up the world and moving the story forward, so cast some bold, energetic young actors.

ShrekMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

He may be a big, scary, green ogre to the rest of the world, but as the story reveals, he's really just a big fellow with a big heart. It is great if Shrek is a solid singer, but most importantly, snag a young man who is an excellent actor with comedic chops.

FionaFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

She may appear to be an ideal princess straight from the fairy tale books, but there is more to her than that stereotypical image. She is an audacious young lady with a wonderful sense of humor and - surprisingly - manners akin to those of a teenage boy. Cast a girl who can do it all: act, sing and dance. This is a premiere role for an experienced performer with a loveable spirit.

Young FionaFemale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Young Fiona and Teen Fiona are younger versions of Fiona and should have solid singing voices.

Teen FionaFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Young Fiona and Teen Fiona are younger versions of Fiona and should have solid singing voices.

Lord FarquaadMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A very short man with gargantuan ambition! He is solely interested in gaining as much power as possible. This is a role for a good singer, but most importantly, your very best comedian who isn't afraid of making bold choices or looking silly.

DonkeyMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A brash, loud, fast-talking animal with no concept of "quiet time." Cast an experienced performer who can sing well and has a whole lot of presence and character. Be sure to choose a performer who complements Shrek well as his loyal and ever-faithful sidekick.

DragonFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A breakout role for a young girl with a lot of soul and spunk. She is a ferocious fire-breathing dragon but finds a surprising love in Donkey. Cast a performer who has tremendous presence and a good pop singing voice.

Mama OgreFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Good roles for a dynamic duo that can kick off the show with a lot of energy and presence. Make sure to cast good singers. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: A3

Papa OgreMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Good roles for a dynamic duo that can kick off the show with a lot of energy and presence. Make sure to cast good singers. Vocal range top: E4 Vocal range bottom: C3

Little OgreMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A role just right for a smaller, younger performer who is new to the stage. He may not have lines but he is very important to the storytelling.

PinocchioMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The wooden boy who cannot tell a lie without being belied by his growing nose. Pinocchio begins in a sour mood about his second-class status but ends the story as a natural leader among the Fairy Tale Creatures. Cast a young performer with a lot of personality who can sing well.

The Three Little PigsBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Pig 1, Pig 2 And Pig 3. The classic three little pigs with a German twist. It isn't necessary that they look identical; focus on finding a fun and dynamic trio.

Ugly DucklingMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

He may be bitter about his unfortunate appearance, but he does find camaraderie among his fellow fairy tale outcasts. This is a fun comedic role for a new performer.

Mama BearFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Papa BearMale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Vocal range top: C4 Vocal range bottom: D3

Baby BearBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Wicked WitchFemale5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A great role for a young performer destined to be a character actress. She has a big personality, so find a performer who is up to the task.

Big Bad WolfBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

He doesn't need to be a scary, threatening big-bad-wolf type. At this point, he's a pretty tame wolf who is reduced to wearing Little Red Ridinghood's grandmother's dressing gown. This is a fun role for a newcomer to the stage.

GingyBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A great cameo role for a young performer who is as earnest as can be. Gingy is based on the Gingerbread Man who runs away like a fugitive from his baking captors. Find a performer with great energy.

Peter PanBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The boy who never grew up, and he continues to act the part in this story. Cast a boy (or girl, if you want to give a nod to the traditional theater casting) who will have fun physicalizing the character.

Captain Of The GuardBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

This role is just right for an actor with some inherent strength and authority. He or she doesn't have to have a lot of stage experience; just be sure to cast somebody who has a big, booming voice and who isn't scared to put all the Fairy Tale Creatures in their place.

KnightsBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Dragon's background singers who all tried at some point to save Fiona from her tower but were held hostage by the Dragon. Cast young performers who can sing well and have some soul just like the Dragon.

DwarfBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Farquaad's comparably short and grumpy father. This is a perfect cameo role for a young performer.

The GuardsBoth genders5-18 y.o.All ethnicities
