Now Playing: Shrek the Musical!

27 performances at the Georgetown Palace Theater from November 21 through December 29, 2014.  

[Musical Direction by Austin Kimble]

In a faraway kingdom, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. One by the name of Shrek!

Music by Jeanine Tesori
Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire
Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig
