Based on the Oscar-winning animated movie, Shrek the Musical brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on stage. 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 that true love is more than skin deep. This CMT Mainstage production features talented local performers aged 14-20.

The "children" are young adults and are talented. This play doesn't have an amazing plot or incredible scenery (even on Broadway), but it's guaranteed for laughs. In addition, since they bring a few audience members to each play, the show is different every time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the play and would definitely recommend it, especially at the Goldstar price!
Directed & Choreographed by Kevin R. Hauge
The thrills ... the chills...the SPELLING? You'll love this hilarious, high-energy performance of the Tony Award-winning 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Called "disarming," "quirky" and "wonderful." this is a show that reminds you of the joy of live musical theater.
Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
