Auditioning for Shrek the Musical JR can be a challenging experience. That's why we have prepared the following excerpts to help you get ready to "Break a leg." You can find all of the information about the auditions by visiting https://wp.me/P1wfnf-kg.

Auditions will be November 12-13, 2018 from 6-8p with callbacks planned for November 15 @ 6p at The Salvation Army, located at 1109 N Thornton Avenue; Dalton, GA 30720.

All participants will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the audition and first rehearsal. Transportation cannot be provided to cast and crew members.

All cast members will be singing and need to prepare the excerpts from the following song: Finale (the ALL part). Also, all cast members need to be familiar with the Ensemble part. All cast members should be prepared to demonstrate their dancing ability. Everyone who auditions should be prepared to learn and duplicate a jazz combination and tap combination. These will be used to assess the ability and range of the participant. Previous dance experience is helpful, but not required for the audition.

There will be 2-3 reading rehearsals for script, music, and choreography in December before Christmas.

Regular rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights from 6-8p, starting December 27, 2018. We also might have two Saturday morning (9-11a) workshops in January for concentrated cast rehearsals.

Stage directions reader

During performances, actors will read from the scripts on music stands. It will be well rehearsed with strongly developed characters, but no memorization is required. There are 32 scenes with five specific locations....wonderful, complex characters....a beautiful love story.....a play perfect for Readers' Theater format.

Synopsis: Roy and Irma have been married for 25 years. They have two children.  They live in America's heartland. They are respected members of their church  and community.  When Roy and Irma see their pastor for a “tune up” counseling session, Roy reveals that he is a woman trapped in a man's body and has reached a time and place he can no longer deny it.  The story is about how Irma, the children, the parents, the church, the community, the work place and Roy, himself, handle this new reality.
