Based on the Oscar-winning animated movie, Shrek the Musical brings the hilarious and heartwarming story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on stage, featuring local performers ages 6 to 55. Shrek just wants to be left alone in his beautiful swamp, but exiled fairy tale characters keep showing up on his doorstep. Finally, he agrees to confront the diminutive yet ruthless Lord Farquaad and hopefully regain his privacy. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, Shrek embarks on a life-changing adventure as an unlikely hero who fights a fearsome dragon and rescues the cursed Princess Fiona. He not only saves the day, but also discovers the value of friendship and realizes true love is more than skin deep. Kids who come in costume can participate in an on-stage fairy-tale character parade before the show. Learn More

Side splitting funny! I sometimes started tearing up I was laughing so hard. My 11 year old daughter had a great time, especially with the gorilla skit! Don’t miss it, even if you saw it last time around. The piano playing, the magic acts and the shadow figures were all incredible! A cavalcade of comedy!
Quotes & Highlights
“A triple jolt of inspired craziness… crackles with an energy and spirit of infectious fun.” -Los Angeles Times
“This is entertainment as it oughta be - slick, silly and joyful." -_-London Metro _
Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4 minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.
