After the close of the curtain from our Sunday performance last year of Children of Eden,  the cast and crew shared moments together backstage like no other show we have ever been a part of. Through all the tears, the hugs, and the laughter from the students and the staff, we were reminded why we "give up" our summer to be a part of this program. We often say that the summer musical program is a family. Though many people might find this statement cliché, we believe wholeheartedly that it is true. The reason that we do not feel as though we "give up" our summers by participating is that those of us that the program really means something to cannot imagine our summers and our lives without it. Our last two summers with Parade  and Children of Eden  have taken the company and our audiences on an emotional journey that we will not soon forget.

This year, we hope to give our company and our audiences a far different, yet equally fulfilling experience as we present the musical Shrek, based on the popular animated movie. On its surface, the story of Shrek  can appear rather thin and the message rather trivial. However, when you stop and think about it, the story of Shrek  sends a very valuable message to audiences of all ages about what happens when we treat people wrongly because they look different, act different, or come from somewhere else. This modern musical is filled with memorable and entertaining characters, offers tremendous music and orchestration, and takes audiences on a fantastic journey along with many of the old fairy tale characters that we have grown up with.  

For much different reasons than the past two years, we are extremely excited to present this show this summer and are energetic about the creative possibilities that a show like this will allow. This show is a BIG challenge in so many ways that will keep us busy and engaged all summer long. We know already how excited many of you are to audition for this show and we look forward to sharing your enthusiasm for the show with hundreds of new audience members this year! Come join us for what will be another memorable WCSC Summer Production!

We would like to ​thank all of the students who demonstrated interest in the Warrick County Summer Musical program by auditioning for Shrek. The amount of talent, passion, and commitment we witnessed in the four hours of auditions was amazing. Unfortunately we are not able to include everyone who auditioned in the musical because of the number of students who auditioned this summer. For those students we did not cast, we encourage you to audition for the 2016 Warrick County Summer Musical.
