Do you have layers?

Do you stay up late, swapping manly stories, and making waffles in the morning?

Maybe, in fact, you do know the muffin man.

If any of these apply to you, or if you were able to catch these obscure references, you might have found your next calling — on stage, that is.

Align Entertainment, a Vancouver-based theatre company, is hosting open auditions for Shrek the Musical, and they’re looking for their next all-star.

Set in the mythical land of “once upon a time,” Shrek the Musical is just like the Dreamworks classic — layers and all.

So whether you’re looking to save the princess or see a flying donkey, there might just be a spot for you.

Auditions for the musical will take place from now until Wednesday, June 12. Rehearsals will start in November and the production is set to run in February 2020 at the Michael J. Fox Theatre.

“We are always thrilled with who comes out for these auditions and don’t put any restrictions on them,” says Chad Matchette, Align Entertainment director and co-producer. “As a result, the range of talent and different backgrounds is incredibly diverse.”

Anyone interested in auditioning is encouraged to come out, whether they’re a professional actor, just starting out, or just a die-hard fan.
