The Liberty Theatre will be presenting “Shrek the Musical!” June 23, 24, 25, 30, and July 1, 2. Devon Sons will be directing the production. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, the musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins 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.
Auditions for Shrek the Musical will be held March 28 and 29 at the Liberty Theatre from 6 to 8 p.m. Please bring a song to sing, a capella or accompaniment track. They are looking for actors, actresses, singers, and dancers of all ages six and up.
