BPA Announces Auditions for SHREK, THE MUSICAL

July 15 & 16: Monday & Tuesday @ 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

BPA “goes green” this October and is thrilled to announce audition dates for the Tony Award-winning SHREK, THE MUSICAL : Monday and Tuesday, July 15 and 16. BPA’s dynamic artistic team includes Director Ken Michels, Musical Director Josh Anderson, and Choreographer Joanna Hardie.

All roles are open to audition. BPA is seeking an adult ensemble of 20-30 performers for this high-spirited production. There are five principal roles available (three men and two women) as well as numerous featured supporting roles and a large singing, dancing ensemble. BPA will also be seeking two young people (ages 8-12) for Young Shrek and Young Fiona and one (age 13-18) for Teen Fiona. A complete listing of characters is available online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org/collections/auditions.

Auditions are by appointment only, and interested parties are requested to email dhadlock@bainbridgeperformingarts.org to make an appointment. Rehearsals are August 12 – October 9; Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30-9:30 p.m. plus Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Run dates are October 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, and 27, plus a Pay-What-You-Can Preview on October 10.Those auditioning are required to prepare a 1-2-minute monologue and a 1-2-minute Broadway-style song. An accompanist will be provided but participants must bring their own sheet music; respondents are also welcome to sing a cappella. Participants are requested to bring a headshot or a current picture to the audition.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, 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.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking costumes, SHREK, THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
