Shrek The Musical
by Milam Community Theatre

May. 20 - May. 21

Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek

Roles:

 

Shrek (Lead): Male, 18+

a big, green, terrifying ogre who lives alone in a swamp. He embarks on a journey to rid his land of fairytale creatures and, along the way, falls in love with Fiona. Begins as a grumpy hermit, but reveals his layers and eventually becomes the hero. Excellent singer and actor; high baritone/tenor.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Princess Fiona (Lead): Female, 18+

the beautiful princess of Far-Far-Away, she transforms into an ogre every night when the sun sets. Rescued by Shrek and eventually falls in love with him. Quirky, blunt, and multitalented, she is not an ordinary princess. Excellent singer and actor with great comic timing; soprano/high belter.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Donkey (Lead): Males & Females, 18+

a talking donkey who joins Shrek on the run from Farquaad's guards. Quite the chatterbox, he is not deterred by Shrek's looks and practically forces himself into his good graces. Easily frightened and pushy, but also an optimist with heart. Excellent singer and comic actor with a huge personality; high baritone/tenor or alto with high belt.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Lord Farquaad (Lead): Male, 18+

the comically short, ruthless ruler of Duloc. He is in search of a princess to marry so that he can become king. Has an intensely unfair bias against fairytale creatures that stems from a resentment of his father. Self-absorbed, lonely, and cruel. Excellent singer and comic actor. Actor must be able to play this role on his knees for the whole show; high baritone.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Gingy (Supporting): Males & Females, 16+

a gingerbread man initially kidnapped by Lord Farquaad. His wit and resolution help him both avoid trouble and inspire the rest of the fairytale creatures. This character is portrayed with a puppet, which may be voiced and operated by actor appearing as Sugar Plum Fairy; any age, any vocal part.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Pinocchio (Supporting): Males & Females, 16+

teen or adult, the leader of the fairytale creatures. Although portrayed by a live actor, Pinocchio is an animated puppet whose nose grows every time he lies. Plenty of sass with a penchant for lying, he leads the troupe of Fairytale Creatures in the musical numbers “Story of My Life” and “Freak Flag.” May double; tenor with falsetto or soprano/alto.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Dragon (Supporting): Female, 18+

a dragon that has been charged with guarding Princess Fiona in her isolated castle. She eventually falls in love with Donkey and attempts to keep him there forever. Imposing and flirtatious, but tired of her job as the glorified baby-sitter. She sings “Forever” with her Knight back-up singers. May double; alto with big belt.

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

 

Lots of fairy tale creatures, villagers, soldiers, dancers and lots of technical crew and production staff needed! Come be a part of this ‘monster’ of a show!
