This summer, Laredo Theater Guild International (LTGI), in cooperation with Laredo Community College, will present SHREK, THE MUSICAL. Auditions for this productions are set for Saturday, April 25 - 7-10 p.m. and Sunday, April 26, 3-6 p.m. and Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2, from 7-10 p.m. at LCC’s Guadalupe and Lilia Martinez Fine Arts Center, Room #101.
Produced by Linda Lopez Howland and directed by Vernon Carroll, SHREK, THE MUSICAL will be LTGI’s 2014-2105 Season finale. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, SHREK, THE MUSICAL is the zany, family-friendly musical comedy about everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, who sets off to save the feisty princess Fiona, from a dragon. Throw in a talking donkey, a bad guy with a short temper, and over a dozen other fairy tale characters and you have a mess that only a big, green ogre named Shrek can handle!
The show will open July 16 and run for 8 performances through July 26. Musical Director and Conductor of the live orchestra will be VMT’s Robert Lopez, Choreographer will be Cristina Greco, and Technical Supervisor will be Marco Gonzalez.
At this time, LTGI seeks cast members ages 14 to adult, to include both young and mature community talents, as well as backstage and technical support. The auditions will consist of singing, dancing and cold readings – actors will be asked to read from scripts provided at auditions. It would be helpful to prepare a song from the show, though not necessary. If possible, it is recommended to attend all of the audition days planned, in particular, the first day. Rehearsals will begin formally in the middle of May.
