GET TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS

LEADS

 

SHREK • Vocal Range: High Baritone / Tenor (A2 - G#4)

A big, green, terrifying ogre who lives alone on a swamp. He embarks on a journey to rid his land of fairytale creatures and, along the way, falls in love with Fiona. Begins as a grumpy hermit, but reveals his layers and eventually becomes the hero. 

 

FIONA • Vocal Range: Alto/Soprano w/ high belt (F3 – G6)

The beautiful princess of Far Far Away, she transforms into an ogre every night when the sun sets. Rescued by Shrek and eventually falls in love with him. Quirky, blunt, and multi-talented, she is not an ordinary princess. Must be able to tap or willing to learn. 

 

DONKEY • Vocal Range: High Baritone/Tenor or Alto w/ high belt (C3- B4)

A talking donkey who joins Shrek on the run from Farquaad's guards. Quite the chatterbox, they are not deterred by Shrek's looks and practically force themselves into his good graces. Easily frightened and pushy, but also an optimistic with heart. 

 

LORD FARQUAAD • Vocal Range: Tenor or Alto w/ high belt (B2 - D5)

The comically short, ruthless ruler of Duloc. He is in search of a princess to marry so that he can become king. Has an intensely unfair bias against fairytale creatures that stems from a resentment of his father. Self-absorbed, lonely, and cruel. Must be able to work on their knees with padding for rehearsals and performances.

 

DRAGON • Age Range: 25-45 • Vocal Range: Alto w/ strong belt (F3 - Eb5)

A dragon that has been charged with guarding Princess Fiona in her isolated castle. She eventually falls in love with Donkey and attempts to keep him there forever. Imposing and flirtatious, but tired of her job as the glorified babysitter. 

 

GINGY • Age Range 20-40 • Vocal range: Tenor or Alto w/ high belt (B3 - C#5)

A gingerbread person initially kidnapped by Lord Farquaad. Their wit and resolution help them avoid trouble and inspire the rest of the fairytale creatures.

 

PINOCCHIO • Age Range: 20-40 • Vocal Range: Tenor w/ strong falsetto (E3 - F#4)

The leader of the fairytale creatures. An animated puppet whose nose grows every time they lie. Plenty of sass with a penchant for lying.
