The Paxton Theatre is excited to announce DreamWorks’ Shrek the Musical Jr. and the third year of the Paxton Theatre Camp, happening at The Paxton Theatre in Bainbridge, OH.
June 26 – 30, directors of DreamWorks’s Shrek the Musical Jr., Jeff and Jenna Horick, will instruct students entering grades one through twelve on acting techniques, make-up, stage combat, costumes, acting games, and explore what actors and crew members do while onstage or backstage. The Horick’s have worked many years in the theatre and have been educators at Hillsboro Elementary for nearly twenty years.
Auditions for DreamWorks’ Shrek the Musical Jr. will be held on Saturday, July 1 at 12:00 p.m. 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 fairytale 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. Those auditioning are asked to bring to read, or memorize, a short one-minute comedic monologue. If students are unable to find material, an option will be provided at auditions. Auditioners will also be asked to sing a short song. Participation in the camp is not required to participate in DreamWorks’ Shrek the Musical Jr. All auditioners must be entering grades one through twelve in the fall. No one older will be considered for a role. DreamWorks’ Shrek the Musical Jr. will be performed August 4-6.
The camp will be held Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day. All participants will receive a free Paxton Theatre Camp t-shirt upon completion of the camp, and be guaranteed at least a minor role in the summer production of DreamWorks’ Shrek the Musical Jr.
