Based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, “Shrek the Musical” brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand and his name is Shrek.
Tickets may be purchased from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets for the production are $12 for reserved seating for children and adults. Tickets for the meal and show are $24.
