Coming to a swamp near you!

Register now for our open auditions for YMCA Productions Summer Show: Shrek The Musical

Performance Dates

Tuesday 26th July until Thursday 1st September 2022

7:30pm Performances every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

Rehearsal Dates

Rehearsals start Monday 9th May.

Rehearsals will be every Monday and Wednesday 6:30pm – 9:30pm with the potential of further rehearsals, if required, during school holidays.
We do ask that all those auditioning are able to make every rehearsal. We do, of course, understand that sometimes you may have other commitments and special occasions during the rehearsal process, and we therefore ask that you inform us of any dates you are not available in advance (at the audition) and we will try and make this work.
You may not be called to every rehearsal, and the Director will produce a rehearsal schedule as far in advance as possible, but we do still ask that those successful in being cast in the production remain flexible, as rehearsal schedules can often change during the process.

Technical & Dress Rehearsals

Technical & Dress Rehearsals are 19th –  21st July 2022. All cast members must be able to attend, no exceptions.


Participation Fees

The show participation fee is £60, this fee helps to pay for costumes, staff for rehearsals, props and scenery. You pay the fee in three monthly instalments starting 1st February.

If this fee means that you can not take part in the show please speak to us confidentially by emailing us at We never want the cost to be a barrier to anyone.
