SHOW INFORMATION
Everyone's favorite ogre is back in the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning, smash hit film.  "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

CASTING NOTES

SHREK
Male  |  Age: 25 - 40  |  Vocal Range: Baritone
A big, green, terrifying ogre who lives alone on a swamp.  Begins as a grumpy hermit, but reveals his
layers and eventually becomes the hero.


PRINCESS FIONA
Female  |  Age: 20s - 30s  |  Vocal Range: Soprano
The beautiful princess of Far Far Away, she transforms into an ogre every night when the sun sets.  Quirky, blunt, and multitalented, she is not an ordinary princess.

DONKEY
Male  |  Age: 20s - 30s  |  Vocal Range: Tenor
A talking donkey - 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 optimistic with heart.

LORD FARQUAAD
Male  |  Age: 30s - 40s  |  Vocal Range: Baritone
The comically short, ruthless ruler of Duloc.  Has an intensely unfair bias against fairytale creatures that stems from a resentment of his father.  Self-absorbed, lonely, and cruel.

DRAGON
Female  |  Age: 20s - 40s  |  Vocal Range: Alto
A dragon that has been charged with guarding Princess Fiona in her isolated castle.  Imposing and flirtatious, but tired of her job as the glorified baby-sitter.

PINOCCHIO
Male  |  Age: 20s  |  Vocal Range: Tenor
The leader of the fairytale creatures.  Plenty of sass with a penchant for lying.

ENSEMBLE
Male & Female  |  Age: 18+  |  Vocal Range: Varies
Fairytale Characters, Duloc Knights, Dancers, etc.
