“Shrek: The Musical,” based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on stage at Skyline High School this April.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not 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, 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.
Performances are Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, April 15 at 2:30 p.m.; Saturday, April 21 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, April 22 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.
