Shrek The Musical
Show Dates: Friday, March 7 - Sunday, March 16, 2014
Sponsored by The George and Jeanette Stuart Charitable Trust
A CMTSJ Premiere! Based on the William Steig novel and the subsequent Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, Shrek packs a comic, tender-hearted punch as big as an Ogre, as loud as a Donkey, and as charming as all our favorite fairy-tale characters brought to life at once! The recipient of 8 Tony nominations, this ingeniously lovable musical will make a Believer out of audience members, reminding them that beauty goes far beyond skin deep and that, sometimes, you just gotta let your “Freak Flag Fly.”
