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.
