Description

Come and help us celebrate Centre Stage Theatre Productions’ 24 th season at our performance of the Broadway smash hit, SHREK the MUSICAL, running Nov. 3, 4, at 7:30 p.m. and Nov 4, 5 at 2:00 p.m. at Centre Stage Theatre, 3505 Mainway, Burlington.

Adapted from the Academy Award-winning animated DreamWorks film, this irresistible tale follows the hilarious journey of an unlikely hero. When a ragtag crew of fairy tale creatures arrives at his swamp having been cast out of the Kingdom of Duloc, Shrek finds himself pushed into a rollicking, life-changing adventure. What starts as a quest to reclaim his land and be left alone soon transforms into a journey of friendship and self-discovery, as he is joined on his travels by a wisecracking donkey and a spirited Princess who doesn’t quite fit the typical fairy tale pattern. As they navigate the machinations of the diminutive Lord Farquaad and the dangers posed by an amorous, fire-breathing dragon, this unusual trio—alongside all your favourite fairy tale characters—come to discover the true meaning of friendship and learn the lesson that beautiful ain’t always pretty.

Sixteen years after the original film was released, it continues to capture the hearts of children and adults alike, spawning successful sequels and winning a range of awards. However, as a classic family musical, this stage version combines traditional and modem themes, and provides a fresh look at a familiar story. Featuring upbeat, toe-tapping songs by Jeanine Tesori and a book by David Lindsay-Abaire that is alternately hilarious and touching, SHREK the MUSICAL transports an audience everywhere from Shrek’s swamp to the Kingdom of Duloc, as the popular movie characters come alive on stage. It is a celebration of family, of life, and of human beings with all our strengths, foibles, similarities, and differences. It is a story that touches the heart, tickles the funny bone, and
provides a magical musical experience—a not-to- be missed event!
