Auditions are open to McKinley/PACS students in Grades 1-8. Everyone who auditions will need to choose one song from the list below to sing for their initial audition on 11/9. Please be at least generally familiar with the other songs as well for the Callbacks. Depending on the number of performers auditioning on 11/9, everyone may not be required to attend Callbacks. Everyone who auditions will be cast in Shrek Jr., but we may need to call some performers back on 11/16 to see exactly where they would fit best in our show. 

Please find a list of Shrek Jr. characters with description here. If you have been part of or seen a McKinley show in the past, you will know that we always add some extra magic and extra roles into our shows, so this is the short list of characters but not all the roles that will be available.
