December 12-13, 2015
Everyone’s favorite ogre is back in the hilarious stage spectacle “Shrek: The Musical,” based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film in STAR Repertory Theatre’s adult/youth production coming to the California Center for the Arts in Escondido on December 12 and 13, 2015. There are a number of San Elijo and San Marcos children and adults cast in this fun loving musical.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a TONY Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek. Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities including costumes, sets, puppets, and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
