The Story

"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.

 
Accomodations
Reserved wheelchair/handicap seats available (limited).

ASL interpretation offered at Saturday June 10 and Saturday June 17 performances.
