MATERIAL FOR PRINCIPALS:
*Note for Shreks – Please be prepared to read the sides with and without the Scottish Shrek accent.
*Note for Fionas – Less “Disney Princess” – More Ogre trying to be her idea of what a Princess is. Embrace the wacky-ness of her!
*Note for Donkeys – Try finding ways to steer away from the Eddie Murphy version of this and truly make it your own. Donkey should be as lovable as he is annoyingly relentless.
Note: You have all been assigned Understudy material for the principal roles above. Please prepare the material for those roles PLUS the Material below for ALL FAIRYTALE CREATURES and THELONIUS. If you were assigned Young/Teen Fiona, please prepare the Young/Teen Fiona song cuts as well.
Note for this: Prepare BOTH Young & Teen Fiona cuts. You may be asked for one or both.
ALL FAIRYTALE CREATURES – Pigs/Knights/Peter Pan/Bears/Wicked Witch/Wolf (Click here to access callback material)
