SHREK the Musical
We are bringing Shrek the Musical back to the stage! March 11–20, 2022.
Here are some things you need to know.
March 11 at 7pm, March 12 at 7pm, March 13 at 7pm, March 18 at 7pm, March 19 at 2pm, and March 20 at 2pm. There is possibily a school show on Thursday, March 17 at 10am. Location: Bayside Performing Arts Center, 2025 Kehoe Avenue, San Mateo.
The first All Cast Rehearsal & Parent Meeting is January 8. The first rehearsal will be January 6 for some cast members. Rehearsals will be every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from January 6 through March 6. (Exact rehearsal times and days will depend on role). No Conflicts are allowed after February 20. Rehearsal Location: 1855 Rollins Road, Burlingame.
Tech week is March 5–10.
Auditions are December 9–12. Auditions will be in person, and masks will be required. An email will be sent out on November 21 to all registered for Shrek the Musical to sign up for audition slots. All registered will need to audition, even if previously cast in Shrek as this is a good learning process.
Auditioners should prepare a 1-minute comedic monologue. If you have a song you are confident in singing or is your ‘go-to’ audition song, use it. Otherwise, select a song from the following list:
Consider Yourself (Oliver!)
A Million Dreams (The Greatest Showman)
Colors of the Wind (Pocahontas)
Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid)
Leslie Stupple will lead optional (but encouraged) Audition Workshops on November 13 and 14. You only need to attend ONE workshop. Details will be sent once you’ve registered.
All cast members will need to be 2 weeks past 2nd vaccine shot by the first All Cast Rehearsal on January 8 (100% vaccination); assuming vaccines are readily available. (We understand this date may need to change based on the actual date vaccines become available, but the point is that all cast members will need to be vaccinated as soon as possible).
All parent volunteers will need to be 100% vaccinated.
Masks will be worn at all times, except when eating and drinking during the audition workshops, auditions and rehearsal process. We will continue to follow the county guidelines regarding masking during performances which will probably change between now and March 2022.
