"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." So begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits and you've got the kind of sticky situation that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand ... and his name is Shrek! Based on the Oscar-winning animated film, Shrek the Musical
is also a Tony Award-winning musical fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie
; Caroline, or Change
) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek
brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage at Woodland Opera House, and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.
