Auditions set for Shrek the Musical

Bedford Youth Performing Company is holding auditions for “Shrek the Musical” from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16. Children in grades 7-12 are invited to audition at the studio at 155 Route 101.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, “Shrek The Musical” brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
