As stated in the production promo, “Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek, The Musical, JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairy-tale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.”
Elaborate costumes and realistic makeup for all the Fairy Tale creatures, under the artistry of Elizabeth Ladd and Sabrina Woodward, were the subject of a recent New York State grant application. Ben G. Borenstein will music direct while Jessie Dobrzynski choreographs the musical running on stage April 6-13, as the second production of the 2018 season.
