St. Catherine’s Players announces audition calls for its

2018 production of Shrek The Musical!

Open Auditions will be held on Tuesday, November 28th and Wednesday, November 29th.

St. Catherine Church, Lucey Parish Hall, 4 Riverside Avenue, Riverside CT


Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure. “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. Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.


This is the Broadway version of the show with mainly adult principals and an active ensemble of all ages. Children must be at least eight years old or in third grade. Open auditions will be held on Tuesday, November 28 and Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at St. Catherine of Siena Church in the Lucey Parish Hall, 4 Riverside Avenue at the corner of Route 1, Riverside, CT. Elementary and middle school students should arrive at 7:30; high school students and adults should arrive at 8:30 pm. Callbacks will be Thursday, November 30, if needed. Come with a prepared song and sheet music in your key for the accompanist. A group dance audition will be held each evening; wear appropriate shoes. In addition, please bring a list of your rehearsal and production date conflicts (January through mid-March).


Rehearsals run Tuesday, January 2 to March 1, 2018 and are held Monday through Thursday and some Sunday afternoons.
