The Theatre Department at Maryville College serves the aspiring theatre professional or future graduate student through curricular programs for majors that provide experience in the art, history, and literature of theatre. The theatre studies major is designed to stress the intrinsic value of a broad study of theatre within the liberal arts tradition. The opportunity for individual expression, development, and specialization in a specific area of interest (acting, directing, dramatic literature, or theatre history) may be explored through production, Senior Thesis, Theatre Practicum, as well as additional work done via a minor in a related field (such as, but not limited to, Music, Art, or English.)



 Shrek auditions will be held on November 6 & 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the Haslam Family Flexible Theatre, located in the Clayton Center for the Arts.  Auditions are first come, first served, and will include both a vocal and dance audition.  An accompanist will be provided.

The production team have pre-selected audition songs, and actors planning to audition should prepare two different songs by two different characters from the selections below.  (The exception is actors auditioning for Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey.  Since the team has selected two songs for each of these characters, please learn both of these songs.)

Call-backs will be held on November 8 and will include reading and singing from the show.

Performances are March 27-March 29, 2020 in the Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre, Clayton Center for the Arts.
