- Seeking to fill the following roles:
Storytellers: 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; looking for bold, energetic young actors. Gender: Both
Shrek: 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. Seeking a solid singer, but most importantly, an excellent actor with comedic chops. Gender: Male
Fiona: 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. This needs to be a girl who can do it all: act, sing and dance. This is a premiere role for an experienced performer with a loveable spirit. Gender: Female
Young Fiona: Young Fiona is a younger version of Fiona and needs to have a solid singing voice. Gender: Female
Teen Fiona: Teen Fiona is also a younger version of Fiona and needs to have a solid singing voice. Gender: Female
Lord Farquaad: A very short man with gargantuan ambition! He is solely interested in gaining as much power as possible. Seeking a good singer, but most importantly, a comedian who isn't afraid of making bold choices or looking silly. Gender: Male
Donkey: A brash, loud, fast-talking animal with no concept of "quiet time." Seeking an experienced performer who can sing well and has a whole lot of presence and character. This will be a performer who complements Shrek well as his loyal and ever-faithful sidekick. Gender: Male
Dragon: A girl with a lot of soul and spunk. She is a ferocious fire-breathing dragon but finds a surprising love in Donkey. Seeking a performer who has tremendous presence and a good pop singing voice. Gender: Female
Mama Ogre: Good role with Papa Ogre, a dynamic duo that kick off the show with a lot of energy and presence. Must be good singer. Gender: Female. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: A3
Papa Ogre: Good role with Mama Ogre, a dynamic duo that kick off the show with a lot of energy and presence. Must be good singer. Gender: Male. Vocal range top: E4 Vocal range bottom: C3
Little Ogre: A role just right for a smaller, younger performer. He may not have lines but he is very important to the storytelling. Gender: Both
Pinocchio: 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. A performer with a lot of personality who can sing well. Gender: Male
The Three Little Pigs: Pig 1, Pig 2 And Pig 3. The classic three little pigs with a German twist. It isn't necessary that they look as identical as possible; they are a fun and dynamic trio. Gender: Both
Ugly Duckling: 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. Gender: Male
The Three Bears: Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Baby Bear. Great cameo roles who sing. Gender: Both. Vocal range top: C4. Vocal range bottom: D3
Wicked Witch: A character actress with a big personality. Gender: Female
Big Bad Wolf: 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. A fun role. Gender: Both
Gingy: 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. Need a performer with great energy. Gender: Both
Peter Pan: The boy who never grew up, and he continues to act the part in this story. Seeking a performer who will have fun physicalizing the character. Gender: Both
Captain Of The Guard: Seeking an actor with some inherent strength and authority with a big, booming voice and who isn't scared to put all the Fairy Tale Creatures in their place. Gender: Both
Knights: The Dragon's background singers who all tried at some point to save Fiona from her tower but were held hostage by the Dragon. Seeking performers who can sing well and have some soul just like the Dragon. Gender: Both
Dwarf: Farquaad's comparably short and grumpy father. A great cameo role. Gender: Male
Ensemble: The Fairy Tale Creatures make up the heart of the show. These characters are taken from the story books but have a bit of a comedic twist. Seeking a diverse group of kids with lots of personality and different strengths. These performers should be proficient singers but most importantly, great actors. Other standout ensemble roles include : The Guards, Duloc Performers, Puss in Boots, Rooster, Pied Piper, Rats and the Bishop. Ensemble roles like Birds, Trees, Deer, Woodland Creatures and Fairy Tale Creatures help make up the backbone of the musical. Gender: Both
- Titanic performances will be April 13-29, 2018 on the weekends.
- Each cast member will be paid a $200 stipend and is required to attend all tech/dress rehearsals (April 8-12, 2018), as well as every performance and strike.
- Regular rehearsals will begin in January and will be scheduled on Sunday evenings, Tuesday evenings, and some Wednesday evenings. There will likely be a read-through scheduled before the holidays to kick things off.

- Fill out and submit the above Audition Form and then sign up for an audition time slot via our Sign Up Genius. Please let us know on the form if you can do any accents or play musical instruments (not required but a great benefit)!
- For Auditions, please prepare 32 measures each of 2 Broadway songs (a ballad and an uptempo). One song needs to be from the show, and the other needs to NOT be from the show. Bring sheet music in a binder clearly marked with the cuts for our accompanist. You will be portraying real passengers who boarded and sailed on the Titanic. The director will be looking for honesty and vulnerability in your emotions both when you are speaking and singing! Pick songs that you feel really show us your emotional range. Also, we would love for you to introduce your song selections to us in an accent, as the show entails British, Irish, German, and Scottish (YouTube is a great resource for accent-training-videos), but don't let that stop you as there are American-accent roles, too. You may be asked to do a cold reading on the spot. Callbacks will entail a dance audition, singing selections from the show, and script readings. Materials for callbacks will be provided by the Production Staff.
