Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
With abundant opportunities for imaginative sets and costumes, and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast, there's a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.

"In Theater and War" written by Upper School English Teacher Amanda Cutalo
Blake Robinson has five Tony Awards; he is renowned on Broadway as an accomplished and innovative director...whom nobody wants to work with! After a particularly intense production of Hamlet, Blake is shunned by the Broadway community and attempts to win back some public goodwill by directing a show at a struggling community theater called Sunny Side Players. However, as Blake soon discovers, this will be no small feat, as he must work with a scatter-brained stage manager, a clueless costume designer, two inept set builders, and an overbearing assistant director. As egos are wounded and tempers flare, Blake and his cast must learn one of the most important rules of the theater: never mess with your crew.
