The production will take place March 26-April 4 2021 at the Bellows Falls Opera House. (8 shows total) We will be rehearsing from January 1 through opening. This show has a very positive message and is loads of fun to do with lots of parts and a huge ensemble, so we hope that everyone will consider auditioning for it.
Auditionees should come to the audition at minimum one of the first two days. They should prepare 18-32 bars of music, either from SHREK or any other Broadway genre song. Please make sure to bring sheet music with you for our accompanist. You will also be asked to move (dance combination) Dress accordingly. Finally, if needed, you may be asked to read from the text.
Here are some suggestions of music choices for specific roles:
Shrek: 32 bars from either: Big Bright Beautiful World, or When Words Fail
Fiona: 32 bars from either: I Know It’s Today, or Morning Person
Donkey: 32 bars from either: Don’t Let Me Go, or Make A Move
