One Act, Book Musical, Rated G
Theatre for Young Audiences Version
Based on the Oscar winning film comes the hilarious stage version of everyone's favorite ogre. (ADAPTED TO ONE ACT)
the hit film, the Tony
Award-winning stage musical that has swept the world with
its magic has been adapted to 1 Act in SHREK THE MUSICAL TYA. Featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (THOROUGHLY
MODERN MILLIE, CAROLINE OR CHANGE) and a side-splitting book by David
Lindsay-Abaire as well as cult SHREK anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK THE MUSICAL TYA brings all the much-loved characters to life, live on stage, in the show that proves there's more to the story than meets the
faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly
ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess.
Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, 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.
In this TYA adaptation developed by The Coterie, a shortened running time and minimized cast size make this the perfect show for families. Full of all of your favorite songs from the full version, great dancing and endless opportunities for creative staging and design, SHREK THE MUSICAL TYA is a sure-fire hit for your season!
