Shrek The Musical

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. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it!) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Auditions will be held Monday, June 25 and Tuesday, June 26 beginning at 6:30 PM, and will be located at the Stadium Theatre - 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket RI. *There is a possibility of callbacks on Saturday, June 30, beginning at noon.

All roles are open. We are looking for teens and adults, along with two roles for children ages 8-12. Anyone auditioning should prepare 16-32 bars of a song in the style of the show that best shows off their vocal ability. An accompanist will be provided. No acapella auditions, please. There will be a dance portion, so either dress comfortably or bring a change of clothes with you. Cold readings from the script will be required. Please bring an actor’s resume and headshot to the audition.

Rehearsals will be Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9:30 PM, beginning in July. Tech week will run from 10/7 to 10/11. (Scheduled tech night rehearsals are mandatory).

School of Rock

“There’s no way you can stop the School of Rock, and we shall teach rock to the world!”

The Stadium Theatre is proud to announce auditions for it’s Fall 2018 production of SCHOOL OF ROCK!!! We are looking for any interested and talented singers, actors, dancers and musicians ages 18 and younger. All roles are open.

School of Rock is a two-hour, two-act musical (plus intermission), based on the hit movie. The tuner follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Auditions will be held on Monday, July 23rd, and Wednesday July 25th beginning at 6:30 PM. Callbacks will be held on Thursday, July 26th beginning at 6:30 PM, all held at the Stadium Theatre, 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket, RI.

All those auditioning MUST BE 18 OR UNDER at the time of auditions. We are asking everyone to please prepare 16-32 bars of a song in the style of the show that best shows off your vocal abilities. Please bring sheet music as an accompanist will be provided (please no acapella auditions). There will be a dance portion, so either dress comfortably or bring a change of clothes with you. Please bring an actor headshot/resume if available.

*Many of the characters play their own instruments live on stage. We are calling interested musicians auditioning for the roles of Dewey, Zack, Katie, Lawrence or Freddy who can play their corresponding instruments, to show us your stuff by preparing a instrumental rock solo (30 second minimum).
