Jolly Jester Children’s Theater is a musical theater opportunity for children in grade 1 through grade 8.

shrek musicalOur production will be held during the school year and this year will feature a musical entitled “Shrek The Musical Jr”. Everyone’s favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle, based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film and outrageous Broadway musical. Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical Jr. It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek Jr. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the
whole family.

Try-outs for the production will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 1:00-3:00 PM and Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 1:00-3:00 PM at the Recreation Gym. Interested participants will be asked to sing a song – 1 minute and recite a 1 minute monologue (i.e. poem, short story) preferably memorized, that you prepare for the try-outs.

Full cast rehearsals will be held primarily at South Park Middle School on Saturday afternoons and Sunday afternoons in
February 2019. 

Please register your child(ren) prior to tryouts so we know how many scripts and other materials to order. A $10 materials fee will be collected at the first rehearsal.
