The hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre is a dazzling new musical for the stage.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre (rather than a handsome prince) shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper (or is it a short guy with a bad temper?), and more than a dozen other fairy-tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there is one —and his name is Shrek. Irreverent fun for everyone! This innovative production is directed by Jessica Barkl; vocal direction by Ethan Smith; choreography by Jessie Bolnick. Live orchestra conducted by Andrew Alegria.
