  • Project Details
    Are you full of cheeky charm and looking for your next adventure? Then come and join our Shrek-ceptional team and get ready to lose yourself in a much-loved, funny fantasy world!

    We are looking for Costume Character Actors to be part of our team helping to bring DreamWorks characters to life, and you’ll be the star of the show as we’re looking for people to play Shrek himself.

    What you need

    - Previous experience in costume work, puppetry, or mime, particularly within entertainments or performance setting
    - Plenty of stamina
    - A real flair for improvisation as interacting with our diverse range of guests is a big part of the role
    - A flexible approach to the role you play and the hours you work
    - Naturally bring a positive, upbeat and team spirited personality

    Due to the limits of the character costumes, your height must be within the following height range: 6’1" to 6'4"

    This exciting role will involve elite visitor interaction, so improvisational skills are a must! You will also be required to act as a buddy for our onsite characters, as well as displaying a great sense of humour at the meet and greet points.
