Feature Performance

Shrek the Musical

April 17 – May 24, 2015

Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay Abaire. Music by Jeanine Tesori. Based on the Dreamworks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig. Originally produced on Broadway by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions.

The 2008 Broadway smash about a horrible ogre, a feisty princess and a garrulous donkey, Shrek the Musical simultaneously subverts and fulfills fairy-tale expectations. With wit and a mischievous humor, we follow our misanthropic, green hero as he learns about the power of friendship and the magical nature of love; all while thwarting a dastardly villain.
