Audition Details

Announcing auditions for Medina County Show Biz’s 2023 Youth Production of Shrek Jr.! 

Auditions will be held March 31 from 5:00-8:00, April 1 from 9:00-12:00, and April 2 from 1:00-4:00 at the Hadded Theater in the Medina County Administration Building. 


Rehearsals will be Monday-Thursday 6:00-8:00 from May 1-June 15, 2023. Performances are June 16, 17, and 18, 2023. 


Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family. 


There is no need to prepare anything; we will teach you how to sing a section of “Freak Flag”, and you will also get the chance to learn a small section of choreography. You may still prepare your own audition song of no more than 32 bars if you would like. Please bring sheet music for the pianist. You will be asked to write down all conflicts in May and June on your audition form. Please note, rehearsals the last two weeks before our show (June 5-18) are mandatory.


Be prepared to stay the entire time, but let Medina County Show Biz know if there is a time issue for you. We hope that you will be able to stay, as we have found that a longer audition time and clinics can help with the nerves. We want the children to have fun and have a chance to really show us what they’ve got. Parents, feel free to stay or drop your child off.


Auditions are three hours:

Hour 1 - Forms, singing and dancing clinics

Hour 2 - Singing and dancing auditions

Hour 3 - Cold reads from the script

*Shrek the Musical, Jr is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
