In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when a swamp-dwelling ogre (not a handsome prince) shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a wise-cracking donkey, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude, and many 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. Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek, The Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale, and complete irreverent fun for everyone!
Support KCPT and see Shrek, The Musical on July 23rd!
