Synopsis
"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.

Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.


Parts

Shrek - An ogre who has spent most of his life as an outcast, living in a swamp far from civilization; his brutish exterior disguises a soulful and brave heart. A reluctant hero. Powerful presence with great wit. Ability to produce a credible Scottish accent a bonus.
Actor: male 25yrs-adult
Vocal Range: high baritone/tenor A2 – G#4 

Princess Fiona -  The beautiful princess of Far Far Away, she transforms into an ogre every night when the sun sets. Rescued by Shrek, she has spent most of her life locked in a dragon-guarded castle reading romantic fairy tales. Not your typical fairytale princess, she is smart and outspoken. And belches.
Actor: female 25yrs-adult
Vocal Range: alto/soprano with high belt F3 - G6

Donkey - Shrek’s self-appointed side-kick, as charming as he is clingy, a bright-eyed motor-mouth whose eagerness and quick wit barely disguise his desperate need for a friend. Charming  with great comic skills
