In a kingdom, Far Far Away, a cranky Ogre is tasked with rescuing a feisty Princess. Throw in a Donkey who won’t stop talking, a Prince with a short temper, a Gingerbread cookie with an attitude, over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, catchy show tunes and you have “Shrek The Musical.”
Based on the DreamWorks Animation motion picture and the book by William Steig, the larger-than-life wise-cracking Ogre and all his fractured fairy tale friends are coming to Atlanta when Lakeside High School debuts their premiere of the Tony-winning “Shrek The Musical” with four performances in the Lakeside High School auditorium. Licensing for the show has been recently released for community theaters and Lakeside’s production, directed by Ms. Nicole Nappo, vocal direction by Mr. Charles Snell, and orchestra conducted by Ms. Tamara Dworetz, will be one of the first area productions of the familiar and beloved tale.
The unforgettable characters include the cantankerous green Ogre, Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey, Lord Farquaad, and many, many others. The musical features include Freak Flag, What’s Up, Duloc?, Big, Bright Beautiful World, I Know It’s Today, Donkey’s hilarious Don’t Let Me Go, and I’m a Believer, the well-known song from the original DreamWorks film.
Lakeside has assembled a cast and crew of more than 70 student actors, singers, musicians, dancers, stage crew, prop crew, lighting and sound technicians, some making their debut in the show.
The show is for all ages and a lot of fun for the whole family!
To keep the show affordable for families, tickets are $5 for children 10 and under and $10 for ages 11 through adult. Tickets are available either online or at the school during the lunch break. We expect a sell out for most performances, so be sure to buy your tickets early!
Shows are at 7 p.m. March 27th, 28th, and 29th and 2 p.m. March 29th at Lakeside High School’s auditorium at 3801 Briarcliff Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30345.
