Drama Club 3-Strikes Policy

Putting on a show is a lot of work and requires a lot of dedication and professionalism from everyone involved!  In order to make sure rehearsals are beneficial to everyone, young performers will earn strikes for attendance and behavior issues. This includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Missing rehearsals (recess, after school, and weekends) that were not originally listed as conflicts on the audition form

  • Being late to rehearsals (recess, after school, and weekends)

  • Leaving early from rehearsals (recess, after school, and weekends)

  • Being picked up late from rehearsals

  • Distracting behavior during rehearsals (talking, playing around, etc)

  • Not listening to directions

  • Not coming to rehearsals prepared (no script, no pencil, not having learned/reviewed lines, lyrics, choreography, and/or blocking)

  • Other behavior / attendance issues

Drama club needs to be your number one priority.  If things come up, please try to plan around the rehearsal schedule.  If this is not possible, please inform the director as soon as possible. Added conflicts might still count as a strike. They definitely will if the director isn't notified before the absence.


Put all dates on your calendar as soon as you receive the rehearsal schedule. If you do not know how to read the schedule, get clarification.  Missing rehearsals for this reason will still result in a strike.


Also students missing recess rehearsals due to having to stay in their own classroom because of behavior or homework issues will still result in a strike. It is the student's responsibility to make sure they are at all rehearsals. If their teacher needs them to stay in for a homework or behavior issue, it is the student’s fault.  Teachers will not be asked to bend their rules and procedures to accommodate the drama schedule.  


After 3-strikes, young performers can be dropped from the drama club without refund of any donations paid.

    The curtain opens on a trio of Storytellers sharing the tale of a little ogre named Shrek. Papa and Mama Ogre sit Shrek down and have a coming-of-age talk with their son, telling him that, since he is now seven years old, it is time for him to make his own place in the world, and he must leave home ("Big Bright Beautiful World"). As the years pass, Shrek transforms into an adult and finds contentment living alone in a swamp on the edge of the kingdom of Duloc. Suddenly, the Captain of the Guards appears, leading a large group of Fairy Tale Creatures into the swamp, including Pinocchio, the Big Bad Wolf, the Three Little Pigs, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Ugly Duckling and the Three Bears. The characters have been exiled from the kingdom of Duloc and banished to live in the swamp ("Story of My Life"). Shrek returns home to find his once private swamp now teeming with the new inhabitants and angrily sets off to confront the leader of Duloc about the injustice.

    As Shrek makes his way through a dense forest, he encounters a screaming Donkey under pursuit by more Guards from Duloc. Shrek scares off the guards and, having lost his way (and despite his better judgment), reluctantly agrees to let Donkey be his guide. Meanwhile, in Duloc, the Guards sing of the "gentrification" of the kingdom ("What's Up, Duloc? – Part 1"). Lord Farquadd appears, questioning the captive Gingy as to the whereabouts of an available princess that Farquaad could marry in order to become king and justly gain control of all of Duloc. Threatened with torture, Gingy relinquishes the information – there is a princess in a tower that is guarded by a dragon and surrounded by boiling-hot lava. Just as Farquaad and the residents of Duloc begin to celebrate their future queen ("What's Up, Duloc? – Part 2"), Shrek and Donkey arrive. Shrek demands the swamp be rightfully returned to him and, seizing an opportunity, Farquaad agrees to find a new home for the Fairy Tale Creatures if Shrek retrieves the princess for him.

    High in her tower, Young Fiona dreams of being rescued by a handsome prince and living the idyllic fairy tale dream ("I Know It's Today"). The years pass, and Fiona grows more anxious day after day, nervous that the stories she's read have misled her. Despite her frustrations, she remains hopeful.

    Meanwhile, Donkey passes time on the long journey by singing ("Travel Song"). Shrek and Donkey arrive at the castle and, donning a knight's helmet that he finds in the castle for protection, Shrek tells Donkey to wait while he rescues the princess. Shrek climbs Fiona's tower while she excitedly prepares for the arrival of her prince. The meeting doesn't go quite as Fiona had planned, and she mistakes Shrek for a brave knight because of his helmet. Shrek doesn't have time to correct this oversight as Donkey is now being pursued by the Dragon. Cornered in the dungeon, four imprisoned Knights warn Donkey that he may wind up like them. The Dragon, frustrated that no one ever pursues her, sings of her loneliness ("Forever"). Falling madly in love with Donkey, the Dragon spares his life, but attacks Shrek when she sees he's freed Fiona. The two battle, and Fiona finally gets her storybook adventure ("This Is How a Dream Comes True").

    Having escaped the dragon, the group sets off for Duloc. Shrek reveals to Fiona that he is actually an ogre and has rescued her for Lord Farquaad. As the sun sets, Fiona demands to set up camp and disappears into a cave for the duration of the night. The Storytellers reveal that Fiona has been placed under a curse causing her to live "by day one way, by night another."

    The next morning, Fiona is chipper and highly caffeinated ("Morning Person"). She greets the woodland creatures, including the Pied Piper and his disorderly Rats, with cheerful optimism. The group continues their journey, and Shrek and Fiona bond over their horrible lives thus far ("I Think I Got You Beat"). The song ends in a gassy display of bravado, and the two become friends. Donkey is convinced that their relationship is actually a budding romance ("Make a Move").

    Having reached Duloc, Fiona postpones meeting Lord Farquaad for one more night and retires to a nearby barn to sleep as the sun sets. That night, Donkey stumbles into the barn and discovers Fiona's secret – she has transformed into an ogress. Fiona explains that she has been cursed to live by day as a human, by night as an ogre, and sees Lord Farquaad as her only chance for happiness because no one could ever love an ugly ogre. Shrek, who has worked up the courage to tell Fiona how he feels about her, overhears only the last part of Fiona's conversation with Donkey from outside the barn, and thinks she is talking about him.

    The next morning, Shrek admits to Fiona that he heard everything she said. Fiona now thinks that he knows her secret and is unable to love her because of it. Just then, Lord Farquaad arrives to claim Fiona. He hands over the deed to Shrek's swamp and makes plans to marry Fiona that night. Hurt, Fiona accepts and leaves with him. The Fairy Tale Creatures drudge on, having been evicted from the swamp. Donkey pleads with Shrek to try to win back Fiona, and the Fairy Tale Creatures agree that he must be proud of who he is rather than ashamed by it ("Freak Flag"). With a sense of empowerment and a plan of action, the group decides to return to Duloc.

    Just as the Bishop is about to marry Fiona and Lord Farquaad, Shrek and the Fairy Tale Creatures burst in. Shrek professes his love for Fiona ("Big Bright Beautiful World – Reprise"), and the Fairy Tale Creatures reveal that Lord Farquaad's father is a grumpy Dwarf. The discovery that Farquaad is actually a "freak," like the Fairy Tale Creatures he condemned, shocks and surprises everyone. During this, the sun has gone down and Fiona has transformed into an ogress. Disgusted, Lord Farquaad claims that the marriage is binding – he is now king and shall lock Fiona back in the tower forever to rule Duloc himself. Just then, the Dragon crashes through the castle wall and heaves a fiery breath at Farquaad. Afterward, all that's left of him is his scorched crown. Shrek and Fiona finally share "true love's kiss" and, although the spell is broken, Fiona doesn't turn back into a human. Shrek convinces her that she is beautiful just as she is, and everyone celebrates their individuality ("Finale").

Shrek, Jr. - Character Breakdown    

Storytellers: These characters are important for setting up the world and moving the story forward. Gender: Both


Shrek:  He may be a big, scary, green ogre to the rest of the world, but as the story reveals, he's really just a big fellow with a big heart. Gender: Male


Fiona: She may appear to be an ideal princess straight from the fairy tale books, but there is more to her than that stereotypical image. She is an audacious young lady with a wonderful sense of humor and - surprisingly - manners akin to those of a teenage boy. Gender: Female

Young and Teen Fiona: Young Fiona and Teen Fiona are younger versions of Fiona. Gender: Female


Lord Farquaad: A very short man with gargantuan ambition! He is solely interested in gaining as much power as possible. Gender: Male


Donkey: A brash, loud, fast-talking animal with no concept of "quiet time." Donkey becomes Shrek’s loyal and ever-faithful sidekick. Gender: Male


Dragon:  A characterl with a lot of soul and spunk. She is a ferocious fire-breathing dragon but finds a surprising love in Donkey. Gender: Female


Mama Ogre: Shrek’s mother who starts the show with a lot of energy and presence. Gender: Female


Papa Ogre: Shrek’s father who starts the show with a lot of energy and presence. Gender: Male


Little Ogre: Shrek at beginning of the show. Gender: Male


Pinocchio: The wooden boy who cannot tell a lie without being belied by his growing nose. Pinocchio begins in a sour mood about his second-class status but ends the story as a natural leader among the Fairy Tale Creatures. Gender: Male


The Three Little Pigs:  Pig 1, Pig 2 And Pig 3. The classic three little pigs with a German twist. Gender: Both


Ugly Duckling: He may be bitter about his unfortunate appearance, but he does find camaraderie among his fellow fairy tale outcasts. Gender: Male


The Three Bears: Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Baby Bear.  Gender: Both


Wicked Witch: She has a big personality. Gender: Female


Big Bad Wolf: He doesn't need to be a scary, threatening big-bad-wolf type. At this point, he's a pretty tame wolf who is reduced to wearing


Little Red Ridinghood's grandmother's dressing gown. Gender: Both


Gingy: Gingy is based on the Gingerbread Man who runs away like a fugitive from his baking captors. Gender: Both


Peter Pan: The boy who never grew up, and he continues to act the part in this story. Gender: Male


Captain Of The Guard: A character with inherent strength and authority. He or she is somebody who has a big, booming voice and who isn't scared to put all the Fairy Tale Creatures in their place. Gender: Both


Knights: The Dragon's background singers who all tried at some point to save Fiona from her tower but were held hostage by the Dragon. Gender: Both


Dwarf: Farquaad's comparably short and grumpy father. Gender: Male


Ensemble: The Fairy Tale Creatures make up the heart of the show. These characters are taken from the story books but have a bit of a comedic twist.


Other standout ensemble roles include : The Guards, Duloc Performers, Puss in Boots, Rooster, Pied Piper, Rats and the Bishop. Ensemble roles like Birds, Trees, Deer, Woodland Creatures and Fairy Tale Creatures help make up the backbone of the musical. Gender: Both
