A jolly green giant sings a lot more than "Ho Ho Ho" in Shrek the Musical, the sensational stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning DreamWorks movie. With 'guest stars' from nearly every children's classic on the shelf -- including the likes of Pinocchio, Gingerbread Man and the Three Little Pigs -- Shrek is a zesty comedy caper that celebrates and lampoons the Land of Make Believe. Join Shrek, a green swamp-dwelling ogre, on his life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Accompanied by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't just for fairy tales. Davis Musical Theatre Company opens its 30th season with this Tony-nominated tale by directed by Steve Isaacson. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“The Davis Musical Theatre Company has hit one out of the ballpark with its wonderful new production of Chess.” —Davis Enterprise
The collaborators on Chess — lyricist Time Rice and composers Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (of megagroup ABBA) — are giants of rock music and rock musicals and they have created a complex rock opera that played to full houses and standing ovations. Here the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, Cold War power politics and international intrigues.
The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion and an American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes “One Night in Bangkok” and “I Know Him So Well.”
Directed by Steve Isaacson, choreographed by Pamela Lourentzos
with musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Jonathan Rothman.
