ABOUT "SHREK THE MUSICAL":The perfect kick off to our 2015-16 Season of "Dreams & Fairy Tales"! It's a big, bright, beautiful world for everyone's favorite ogre in Shrek the Musical, based on the Oscar-winning animated film. In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who've been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task: If he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn't be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way. Shrek is an irreverently fun show for the whole family. A great story, amazing musical score, and abundant opportunities for young actors - both boys & girls - to play colorful characters.
