So well done! FUN for the kids and adults. Some of the humor was meant for the adults....went right over the kids heads, but not offensive in anyway. The sets were good, dancing and singing were great. The donkey was my favorite and amazed at the Asian baby Shrek and baby bear. So cute and talented. Great seats with my Red Velvet membership. Goldstar ROCKS!
