“Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek the Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero, played by senior Tashawn Elliot, who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey (Senior DuVall Jones) and a feisty princess, Fiona (Senior Erika Denny) who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, Lord Farquaad (Senior Jack Fogle) a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a 25’ fire-breathing dragon created by Lakota West Theatre) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.”
