Detailed costumes, prosthetics and makeup are being planned for the Shrek, Jr production much as the same attention to detail in the recent production of The Hobbit. (Seen here from left, as goblins: Griffin Marriner, Marcus Doran, Kevin Colvin, Noah Pauldine, Lily Lewis, and Jon Pauldine.)

Auditions will be held December 3 from 3-5 p.m., December 4, from 3-5 p.m. and December 5, from 6-9 p.m. at the Arts Center, 11 River Glen Drive on the Cayuga College Fulton Campus.

Those auditioning should be between ages 7 and 18, and still in school.

They should also prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre Song (must provide sheet music) and a one-minute comedic monologue.

As stated in the production promo, “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. It’s a ‘big bright beautiful world’ as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairy-tale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.”

Elaborate costumes and realistic makeup for all the fairy tale creatures, under the artistry of Elizabeth Ladd and Sabrina Woodward, were the subject of a recent New York State grant application.

Ben G. Borenstein will music direct while Jessie Dobrzynski choreographs the musical running on stage April 6-13, as the second production of the 2018 season.
