Set in a mythical, fairy-tale land, Shrek the Musical is a story about a hulking green ogre who retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation after a lifetime of mockery. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying theyve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: Ill get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: Hell give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealingsomething strange and differentabout this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets? Bring your family to this engaging musical next summer to see how the story ends for Shrek!
