Description

​Everyone's favorite ogre is back in the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film.  It's a "big bright beautiful world" for everyone's favorite ogre in "Shrek The Musical JR.," based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film.  In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who've been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task - if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn't be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way.
