I am auditioning for a role in Shrek The Musical and I want a big role.
Which role is bigger (e.g. more stage-time): Fiona as a human, or Fiona as an ogress?

There are three "Fiona" parts in the script for Shrek the Musical; Young Fiona, Teen Fiona and Princess Fiona (who also plays the part of Ogress/Fiona wearing green makeup).
The part of Fiona is dramatically larger than that of her younger selves.
Young Fiona = 52 lines in total (The bulk of which are in one song at the start and 9 in the shared song at the end).
Teen Fiona = 40 lines in total (The bulk of which are in one song at the start and 5 in the shared song at the end).
Princess Fiona = 408 lines in total (138 lines in Act 1 + 270 lines in Act 2).
In the (unlikely) event that they've split off the role of Ogress/Fiona as a separate part, you should be aware that she only has 64 lines, over a third of which (23) are in the shared song at the end.
