Musical theater is my passion, and one of my favorite shows is Shrek the Musical. I think it offers a really nice range of characters that differ from the norm, as well as a really well written score. As Shrek is a role I aspire to play at some point in time, I chose to perform his comedic ballad “When Words Fail”. In the show, he sings this as he is working up the courage to give Princess Fiona—whom he has a crush on—a flower. While the piece mainly highlights my acting ability, I think it shows my musical ability as well.
