Two young girls will have the chance to be a princess for the day and make their Broadway debuts in Shrek The Musical this September.

The creators of the Broadway production have teamed with to create a website where aspiring young actresses ages 6 to 14 can rehearse and upload a video of themselves performing Princess Fiona's "I Know It's Today" from the Dreamworks musical. Videos can be submitted July 28-Aug. 16.

All submitted video performances will be viewed by Shrek director Jason Moore, lyricist and book writer David Lindsay-Abaire, composer Jeanine Tesori and Tony-winning actress Sutton Foster. The team will then select two young actresses to perform opposite Foster as "Young Fiona" and "Teen Fiona" at the evening performance on Sept. 19.

The winning contestants will be notified by Sept. 10 and will receive travel and hotel accommodations in New York City where they will meet and rehearse with Sutton Foster and the Shrek creative team in preparation for their Broadway debut.
