SHREK THE MUSICAL tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure through a kingdom filled with fairytale misfits in order to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wisecracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess, and learns that real friendship and true love are not only found in fairy tales. Full of all-new songs, great dancing and an important message about acceptance and following your heart, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
North’s production features a cast, crew, and orchestra of more than 100 students as well state of the art projection technology, elaborate scenery and breathtaking original costumes.
Even though it is based on a popular children’s story, this is a full-fledged, professional Broadway musical with an amazing score, engaging characters, and a very moving story. It’s entertaining for children while being smart and poignant for adults. Our production contains a lot of original staging and several wonderful surprises never seen before in any previous production of SHREK. We’ve pulled out all the stops on this one.

JOURNEY TO THE WEST
Audition for the Spring Play: Journey to the West by Mary Zimmerman
March 20 and 21 (only need to attend one day)
3:45 PM in the LGI
This adaptation of a late sixteenth-century classic Chinese comic novel, Journey to the West, takes as its point of departure the true story of a seventh-century monk and his fabled pilgrimage from China to India in search of sacred texts. Mixing whimsy with spiritual weight, Zimmerman’s script combines the rambunctious energy and low comedy of a Wizard of Oz-like trip with the lyrical beauty of Chinese poetry and the mysterious revelations of a spiritual search to create a moving allegory of human perseverance.
