Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort
of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after
being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path,
retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a
gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three
Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the
vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your
homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet,
the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters
their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds
something appealing—something strange and different—about thispretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But
why does she always run off when the sun sets?
An INCREDIBLY FUN SHOW WITH LOTS OF LEAD, SUPPORTING AND ENSEMBLE PARTS!
