Male 25 to 45
Our story's title character. 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
as a grumpy but
humorous hermit, and lat
er reveals his layers
and eventually becomes the hero.
must be larger than life with
great wit and
be likeable, the
audience should love him.
We will be using prosthetics for Shrek so be
aware of timescales with this part,
as we will
need someone who can be at the theatre early
and not mind wearing a fat suit and possibly a
prosthetic mask for the show.

Female 25 to 35
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.
Fiona also has many layers and as per Shrek, she
needs to have strong comedic timing, but not
too harsh. Good all-rounder, with tap if possible.

Male 20 to 35
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.
We are open to interpretation with this
character. It is obviously written for a black actor
but needs to be hilarious!

Male 30 to 45
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. Slimy Like Duke of Monroth in Moulin
