Open Auditions - 25th April 2021

We’re delighted to announce open auditions for further roles in our production of ‘Shrek the Musical’ at Storyhouse, Chester this September.


Originally due to be performed in 2020, the performances have now been rescheduled for the 15th – 19th September 2021. We’re taking the opportunity to expand our existing 2020 cast with a fresh round of auditions.


Our company will feature two separate teams across 6 performances. Along with opportunities for chorus and minor principal roles, we’ll also be looking for talented young performers to take on the iconic roles of ‘Fiona’ and ‘Farquaad’, as well as a team of dancers.


If you’re aged between 10 and 25 with a passion for performing, we’d love to hear from you! The initial auditions will take place on Sunday 25th April between 10am and 4pm. Due to the current restrictions, auditionees will be assigned specific time slots during the day and audition in socially-distanced small groups. For auditionees over the age of 18, your audition will take place via Zoom.


To apply, please click on the link below to complete an audition form. Applications must be received by Monday 19th April. After the 19th, you’ll receive an email with details of your allocated time slot and full information about what to expect on the day. Please don’t panic though – our friendly audition panel will not expect you to learn lengthy sections of script or full songs!
