shrek posterDirected by TITG veteran Jeanna Van Dyke, and  based on the Oscar winning DreamWorks film that started it all, SHREK THE MUSICAL brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. 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.

Full of all-new songs, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for the whole family! Songs include: The Story of My Life, Welcome to Duloc,, Freak Flag, and I’m a Believer.

Performance dates for SHREK THE MUSICAL are Dec. 5 through Dec. 21.

The curtain time for evening performances is 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. Matinee performances are at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoons.

Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for seniors (60 and over) and youths (17 and under).

The box office is open on Wednesdays 4 to 6 p.m. and one hour before each performance.

Character Breakdowns are as follows:
* Please note, the non-singing/non-speaking role of THE VISITOR has been cast

“PERCY TALBOTT Early 20’s. Pretty, if a bit rough-edged, her face declares the strength of her youth and a sadness beyond her years. Her accent has a southern Appalachian cadence. Strong folk/ country belt to ‘D’, some head voice required.”

“HANNAH FERGUSON About 60 – 70. A tough-skinned and flinty old bird with a short, no-nonsense manner bordering on the bitter. Mezzo/alto chest range.”

“SHELBY THORPE Late 30′s – Early 40′s. A plain, soft-faced creature with a shy, almost ethereal manner. Shimmering folk soprano with strong D belt

“CALEB THORPE Early 40’s. Out-of-work foreman of the stone quarry. Frustrated working man clinging to the past. Solid folk/ rock voice with an edge (Top ‘G’)”

“SHERIFF JOE SUTTER Mid-late 20’s. A young small-town policeman with an appealing intensity and a restless nature. Strong folk tenor to a ‘G’ (touches an ‘A’).”

“EFFY KRAYNECK 50’s. Postmistress and busybody, a woman with narrow eyes and a sour tongue. Solid singer in mezzo/alto chest range. (Carries close harmony.)”
