Shrek: The Musical script available for download

A note from Maryann Zschau, the director for Shrek:

Shrek will be performed December 6-8 at Littleton High School.  It is open to ALL students in grades 7-12.

Hi everyone,

Trying to get a jump on the madness of what will be auditioning the musical at the beginning of school, so I thought I would send out a PDF of the SHREK script for all of you to add to your summer reading list.  Please note that it is in two PDF’s and that the only roles that will have to be played by boys are Shrek , Donkey and Farquad .  All others are unisex!

You can download the Broadway sound track on Itunes or get it on Amazon, but please note that one of Donkey’s tunes and the Dragon’s song are different in the script and we will be doing the script versions, not the CD versions.

We are still putting together the week night rehearsal schedule (Sunday afternoons from 1PM to 6PM are confirmed), and will be in touch with that in the coming weeks.  Please know that your weeknight availability WILL affect the size of the role you get, but there are LOTS of roles of all sizes.  It’s a big, new show for us, so we need full commitments from those in leading roles ( Shrek , Fiona, and Donkey in particular).

Mr. Bergman is actually musically directing a community theatre production of “Shrek” in September in Sterling MA (Next to Leominster), that I would encourage you to see.  Details to follow…

Have a wonderful rest of the summer and stay cool!
