The Un-Common Theatre Company begins our 36th season with our Fall Production of the beloved story – Shrek.

"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.

Schedule your audition today and be part of bringing this beloved Broadway musical to life on stage. Join us as we share this magical story and its many unforgettable characters and songs including “What’s up Duloc?”, “Morning Person” and “Freak Flag”.

Auditions for students in Grades 2 through 12 will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2015 BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please click HERE for audition information.

For those who are out of practice, would like to improve auditioning skills, or get an advanced opportunity to work with the Shrek Creative Team, Un-Common is offering an Audition Workshop on Thursday, September 17th, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. Please click HERE for more information on the audition workshop.

Shrek The Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
