Cresson Lake Playhouse is pleased to announce this spring’s youth theatre production, Shrek, Jr. Based on the popular animated film, Shrek, Jr. features an unlikely hero, Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad along with a gang of fairy-tale misfits, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter, and romance guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
Auditions for Shrek, Jr. will be held at 427 South Center Street in Ebensburg on Sunday, February 25 from 2 to 3:30 pm for children in grades 3-6 and 3:30 to 5 pm for children in grades 7-12 and Monday, February 26 from 6 – 7:30 pm for children in grades 3-6 and 7:30 to 9 pm for children in grades 7-12. Auditionees will be taught several measures of a song to sing and will be given a short reading to perform. These materials can be prepared ahead of time and can be found by clicking here. There will not be a dance audition.
Auditionees will need to bring a list of all conflicts from February 27 to May 6 to the audition. Participants in the cast will be required to pay a $50 participation fee if they did not attend the youth theatre workshop held in January and February and a $25 participation fee if they completed the workshop. The participation fee covers the cost of a show shirt as well as other production costs. Scholarships are available.
