Ensemble Role Auditions: You will only be required to sing 20-30 seconds of ‘I’m A Believer’ from the show, or a song of your choice. ‘Believer’ backing track and lyrics will be available on the ‘Auditions 2022’ Teams page.
Lead, Supporting and Cameo Role Auditions: You will be required to sing a short section of a song from Shrek the Musical and read a short monologue from the show. Character information, song backing tracks and lyrics, and monologues will be available on the ‘Auditions 2022’ Teams page.
STEP 4 – FOR FEATURED DANCERS ONLY:
Those auditioning to be a Featured Dancer: You do not need to book an audition time slot as you will be creating a pre-recorded video audition. On the ‘Auditions 2022’ Teams page you will be able to access a video recording of a short dance routine. You will need to learn this routine and send a video recording of yourself performing the routine to Miss Taylor-Lynch directly (private message) on Teams by Wednesday 10th Nov. Please also include a quick video of any jumps, turns, or flexibility skills etc. that you can do. There is no need to book in an audition time slot for a Teams meeting/video call, but you must submit your pre-recorded video audition by the due date.
