Open Door Community Theatre is pleased to announce that it will hold auditions for “Shrek the Musical” Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12, 5-9 p.m., and Saturday, April 13, 1-5 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church, 7305 Afton Road in Woodbury.
“Shrek the Musical” is the delightful story of Shrek, the ogre who lives alone in the woods and is followed by a chatty donkey as they set off to rescue Princess Fiona. They will meet a fiery dragon, many fairy tale characters and a rather short Lord Farquaad. This is truly a perfect family musical, enjoyed by all ages.
We will need actors/singers from middle school age through adults. Auditioners should bring a picture and resume, and be prepared to sing 16 to 32 bars of an upbeat song. Rehearsals begin May 13, and performances will be held at the new Oltman Middle School in Cottage Grove on June 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7 p.m., with matinees on June 23, 27 and 30 at 2 p.m. To sign up for auditions, go to https://tinyurl.com/od-Shrek
