Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical, JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. With abundant opportunities for imaginative staging and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast, there’s a super fun part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story, so “let your freak flag fly”!

Three performances are scheduled:

  • 10:30 a.m.

  • 2:30 p.m.
