 Roles:

Shrek – (Male, age 25-45, range 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. He begins as a grumpy hermit, but reveals his layers and eventually becomes the hero.

Princess Fiona – (Female, age 20-30, range 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 multitalented, she is not an ordinary princess.

Donkey – (Male, age 20-35, range C3-B4) A talking donkey who joins Shrek on the run from Farquaad’s guards. Quite the chatterbox, he is not deterred by Shrek’s looks and practically forces himself into his good graces. Easily frightened and pushy, but also an optimistic with heart.

Lord Farquaad – (Male, age 30-45, range B2-D5) The comically short, ruthless ruler of Duloc. He is in search of a princess to marry so that he can become king. He has an intensely unfair bias against fairytale creatures that stems from the resentment of his father. Self-absorbed, lonely, and cruel.

Dragon – (Female, age 25-45, range 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 baby-sitter.

Gingy – (Female, age 20-40, range B3-C#5) A gingerbread man initially kidnapped by Lord Farquaad. His wit and resolution help him both avoid trouble and inspire the rest of the fairytale creatures. Puppet.

Pinocchio – (Male, age 16-35, range E3-F#4) The leader of the fairytale creatures. He is an animated puppet whose nose grows every time he lies. Plenty of sass with a penchant for lying.

Wolf – (Male, age 20-40, range E3-F#4) The famous adversary of Little Red Riding Hood.

Adult Ensemble – Various fairytale creatures; angry mob; Duloc townspeople; guards; knights; rats

Youth Ensemble (Ages 10-17) – Fairytale creatures, young Shrek, young Fiona, grumpy dwarf
