The competition will be open for entries from 2nd February until 10th of February with callbacks for the best entries taking place from 13th of February. This will allow fans to enter through crafting their very best costume/look and posting a video of them wearing the ‘looks’ live on social media.

The best costume creators will be invited to callback auditions, where a final winner will be selected. The winner will then be given the opportunity to join the stars on stage at Dubai Opera playing the role of ‘Young Shrek’ for 8 performances at Dubai Opera!
