DLT is pleased to announce auditions for its 2019 production of Shrek the Musical!

LOCATION: Hodgson Studio of Music and Drama — 814 W. Walnut Ave.
WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?
Please prepare one 32-bar (approx. one minute) cut of a song that you love to sing (musical theatre preferred). The initial audition is about getting to know you, so let us see your
personality shine! Please bring appropriately marked sheet music in the correct key for our accompanist, or you may bring a karaoke or instrumental track. No a cappella auditions accepted. We will provide an AUX cord to play your track via cellphone or other electronic device. All actors under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a legal guardian.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Shrek has a large cast of over 50 people. Most roles are for teenagers and adults, but we will be casting around a dozen children (age 6 and up). Anyone wishing to help with another area of the production (painting, costumes, set) may also come by and share their contact information.
REHEARSAL SCHEDULE & PERFORMANCE DATES
Rehearsals will be held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings as well as Saturday afternoons commencing January 3. Most cast members will not be called to rehearsal every day, BUT must be prepared to attend any rehearsals in which they are called. Upon move-in to the Simmons Center Theater on February 10, rehearsals will be held Monday-Friday for all cast members nightly until the first performance date. Please come prepared with a list of any conflicts you may have with the rehearsal schedule. (Note: no conflicts after February 10.) Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on February 22 & 23 and March 1 & 2, as well as 2:00
