Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, “Shrek the Musical” follows the adventures of the ogre Shrek, a wisecracking Donkey, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad, and everyone’s favorite fairy tale creatures. The Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure is directed by Tad A. Brannon, with musical direction by Samantha Pasquale Brannon. 

In the story, Shrek and his loyal sidekick, Donkey, set off on a quest to rescue the feisty, beautiful Princess Fiona. On their life-changing journey, they meet a short-tempered bad guy, a gang of fairy tale misfits, a cookie with an attitude, and a very large dragon. Can an unlikely hero help each of the creatures celebrate what makes them special and find their happily-ever-after?

Tickets, which are $10 for all seats, are available at the door 45 minutes before show time or in the lobby of the auditorium from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on March 14, 16, 21, 23, 27, and 28 and April 6. Tickets can also be purchased by sending an email request to
