BEFORE YOU PREPARE
FOR YOUR AUDITION
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!
should prepare 2 DIFFERENT SONG SELECTIONS
You will be considered for all the characters in the show, regardless of which songs
selection is a combination of 2 audio tracks (Guide Vocals followed by Accompaniment only). The
lyrics are provided directly below the audio tracks. Learn the song using the Guide Vocals, then use the Accompaniment to
prepare for the audition. It is preferred that lyrics be memorized so we can see the performer act as well as sing,
but you may audition with the lyrics, if ABSOLUTELY necessary.
PLEASE LISTEN TO ALL OF THE SONG SELECTIONS
IN CASE WE WANT TO HEAR YOU SING ANY OF THEM.
You do not have to memorize or rehearse the selections you aren't auditioning with- we
just want you to have heard them and have some familiarity with them. This will benefit you in regards to other
roles you for which you may be considered. You may be asked to sing other songs at your audition.
Additionally, we don't want you to necessarily copy the styles of the
singers on the guide vocals. Feel free to sing in your own style!
Keep your big bright beautiful world! I'm happy
where I am, all alone.
I got all I need, so read the stinkin' sign! Keep your big bright beautiful world. I party
on my own, anyway. Doin' what I can with a one-man conga line. Yeah, your big bright beautiful world
is all teddy bears and unicorns. Take your fluffy fun and shove it where the sun don't shine! I prefer a life like
this-it's not that complicated. Sure, I'm fated to be lonely and I'm destined to be hated. If you read the books,
they say it's why I was created. But I don't care, 'cause being liked is grossly overrated. Who needs a big
bright beautiful world? I got my own little patch of the world! It's not a big bright beautiful world, but it's mine!
Alone! It's mine! And it's mine!

I KNOW IT'S TODAY includes 3 audition
PLEASE SING ONLY ONE :)
I KNOW IT'S TODAY
YOUNG FIONA: (sings from beginning to 1:28)
There's a princess in a tower (Oh
my gosh, that's just like me) Poor Rapunzel needs a haircut but the witch won't set her free. She passes time by singing
(like someone else I know) As years go by she sits and waits- (as years go by? Uh-oh) A torturous existence (I don't remember
this part) She wishes she were dead (skip ahead, skip ahead), But in the end Rapunzel finds a millionaire-the prince is good
at climbing and braiding golden hair...so I know he'll appear, 'cause there are rules and there are strictures. I
believe the stories I read by candlelight. My white knight and his steed will look just like these pictures. It won't
be long now, I guarantee. Day number 23. I know it's today. I know it's today.
FIONA: (sings from 1:28 to 2:54)
There's a princess in a coma (glad it's her
instead of me) Pretty maiden in a glass box (how I wonder does she pee?) Blah-blah-blah-blah poison apple boring-boring evil
queen filler-filler been-there-read-that, seven shorties on the scene. (skip ahead skip ahead) But in the end the princess
wakes up with a start. The prince is good at kissing and melting Snow White's heart. So I know he'll appear and his
armor will be blinding. As shining as his perfect teeth and manly hose. He'll propose on one knee, and our pre-nup will
be binding, 'bout time we set a wedding date! Day number 958. I know it's today. I know it's today.
FIONA: (starts singing with Teen Fiona at 2:50)
There's a princess-any princess- take
your pick they're all like me. Not exactly-I'm still waiting. They're out living happily. Ever after better get
here. I want love in seconds flat. No one needs these middle bits. (whoops, did I do that?) Cut the villains, cut the
vamping. Cut this fairytale, cut the peril and the pitfalls! Cut the puppet in the whale! Cut the monsters, cut the curses!
Keep the intro, cut the verses! And the waiting, the waiting, the waiting, the waiting, the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiting...but I
know he'll appear, though I seem a bit bi-polar. And I'm a vandal now as well. Hope he won't mind. I'm a find.
I'm a find. I'm a catch. And a very gifted bowler. It won't be long now, I guarantee. Day number...Are you there
God, it's me Fiona, it's me Fiona.... (go from the B to C)

I THINK I GOT YOU BEAT
is NOT one of the audition choices.
It is for for the actors who are auditioning specifically for the roles of "Shrek" or "Fiona".
We want you to be very familiar with
I THINK I GOT YOU BEAT as you may be asked to sing it with one of the
directors. If you are serious about auditioning for these 2 large roles, you need to be very familiar with I THINK I GOT YOU
BEAT. We will only ask to hear it if we feel we need to hear it. We will have the lyrics in the studio.
I THINK I GOT YOU BEAT
FIONA: I had
nothing in that tower, fighting boredom by the hour. Princess Lonely, walking circles. I had only...bare essentials-army cot,
a hot plate and a chamber pot and every morning I would boil it. No choice, I had no toilet. Just a view of devastation out
one window, isolation in my bedroom and very little headroom. Twenty years I sat and waited. I'm very dedicated.
On the walls the days were added. Luckily those walls were padded! So...I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat. Yeah.
Yeah. Yeah. I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat.
SHREK: I've heard better, I'm just sayin'.
A for effort, thanks for playin'. Sad to see a princess suffer, but I had it rougher. Like that time a mob with torches
burned my britches-see the scorches? You're just whiny. I had a flamin' heiney! As I fled I had to wonder, if I were
torn asunder, would an ogre go to heaven? Did I mention I was seven?
So...I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat.
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat.
FIONA: No warm regards
SHREK: no Christmas
FIONA: and every day
SHREK: was hell on earth day.
FIONA: OK, top this... I missed my prom
my dad and mom sent me away it was my birthday.

LET ME GO
Hey-hey-hey, ya gotta let me go with you. You don't know what it's like to be considered
a freak...Well, maybe you do. But that's why we gotta stick together. Don't speak, don't speak, don't
speak. Just hear me out, I might surprise you. I'll be a friend when others despise you. Don't roll your eyes! Stop
with the mopin'! You need a pal. My calendar's open! I'll bring you soup when you feel congested. I'll bail
you out when you get arrested.
I gotcha back when things get scary. And I'll shave it when it gets hairy. Don't
let me go. Don't let me go.Don't let me go-oh-oo-ohhhhhh... You need me. You need me.
I'll treatcha right,
and never act shoddy, if you kill a man, I'll hide the body. Whadaya say? You're not responding...I think we're
bonding! Don't let me go. Don't let me go. Don't let me go-oh-oo-ohhhhhh... you need me. You'n me, we
belong together like butter and grits, like kibble and bits, like yin and yang-sturm and drang-like eng and chang attached
at the hip, but not an old lady hip that might break. I'm gonna be on you like a fat kid on cake. Like Cupid and Psyche-like
pop rocks and Mikey, we'll stick together like that Velcro stuff-I'm the fuzzy side and you'll be the spiky. Like
little kids and the pajamas with those funny things at the bottom. You know-feeties! Like donuts and what goes with donuts?

WHAT'S UP, DULOC?
Once upon a time this
place was infested. Freaks one every corner -I had them all arrested.
Hey nonny-nonny-nonny-no. If you had a quirk, you
didn't pass inspection. We all have our standards, but I will have perfection. And so- and soooooo... Things are
looking up here in Duloc. The things I'm cooking up here in Duloc. A model that amazes. A plan with 7 phases. Things
are looking up here in Duloc. In Duloc! The ladies all look swell. The men are so dashing-thanks to my new dress code-the
fashion's never clashing. Hey nonny-nonny-nonny-no. The castle I had built is taller than the cliff-tops. A city like
a postcard, a monorail and gift shops! And so...and so... and so... No one from the gutter in Duloc. Embrace the cookie cutter
in Duloc. The upshot is enormous when you can shout...Conform us! Things are looking uuuuup here in Duloc.

STORY OF MY LIFE
Life is disappointing.
Woe is what I know. Outed by my nose-that's just how it goes for poor Pinocchio. Story of my life-always doomed to fail.
Cheated by a fox-swallowed by a whale. That's the story of my life-oh yeah. That's the story of my life. Strife is
never ending. Banished from the town. They dragged me from the pond. They broke my magic wand.
Zey blew our condos
down. Life is but a witch hunt. Mama's in da mud, Mama's in distress. They ridiculed my hat. Zey said zat vee vere
fat. They tore my cotton granny dress and called me a hot'n tranny mess. Story of my life, Booted form the ball. The party's
off the hook but I'm too off the wall. That's the story of my life. That's the story of my life. That's the
story of my life.
