Little Theatre of Owatonna is pleased to announce auditions for its first production of the 2017-2018 season, ‘Shrek the Musical’ on July 30 & 31 from 6:30 PM – 9 PM at the Little Theatre of Owatonna, 560 Dunnell Dr., Owatonna, MN.
Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, ‘Shrek the Musical’ is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. However, isolation ends when familiar fairy tale creatures appear and invade his domain. Shrek then begins an adventure to the kingdom Far Far Away to regain his swamp and help the fairy tale creatures. As usual for fairy tales, his adventure will conclude with a happy ending.
Parts are available for ages 10 and older. Audition packets will be available at the Owatonna Public Library, Adult Services beginning July 15.
