Oceanside CA— The Star Theatre Coast Kids will be holding auditions for their upcoming show, SHREK the Musical on September 6th and 7th.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks animated film, Shrek the Musical is a TONY Award-winning fairy tale set in a mythical “once upon a time”. The story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. When a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquad, Shrek strikes a deal to help them both reclaim their homes. Rescuing of a princess, adventure through a forest and even a talking donkey, all round out this fairy tale adventure. SHREK brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears. Rating: PG
