Prairie High School drama is set to present “Shrek the Musical” beginning Oct. 28 at the high school. Produced by special arrangement with Musical Theatre International, “Shrek the Musical” is a fairy tale adventure that brings all the beloved characters you know from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
Come and witness the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. 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 mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
Featuring music by Jeanine Tesori and the book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, the show runs Oct. 28-29 and Nov. 3-5. Performances will be at Prairie High School, 11311 NE 119th St., Vancouver.
