Shrek The Musical by StarStruck Theatre - SummerFest 2014
Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a 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.

"By words a man transmits his thoughts to another; by means of art he transmits his feelings," Tolstoy wrote in his evocative essay entitled "What is Art?" If so, the Gary Soren Smith Center for the Fine and Performing Arts offers a range of emotional expression in the variety of artistic presentations to share during its 2013-2014 Season of the Arts.
