Princess Fiona: 20s-30s, has spent most of her life locked in a dragon-guarded castle, reading fairytales about damsels being rescued by handsome and charming princes, She’s a too-smart, outspoken, tough-as-nails girl who can't help burping or launching into hand-to-hand combat when the si
Donkey: 20s-30s, Shrek's self-appointed sidekick, as charming as he is clingy, a bright-eyed motor mouth whose eagerness and quick wit barely disguise his desperate need for a friend. Seeking an R&B vibe performer with great comic skill.
Lord Farquaad: 30s-40s, a pompous and power-hungry little villain with a raging Napoleon complex and an intense dislike of all fairytale creatures. Seeking an actor with very short stature or willing to perform on knees.

Vince Fontaine: (Adult) a typical ‘teen audience’ radio disc jockey. Slick, egotistical, fast-talking. A veteran ‘greaser’.
