What's on

Shrek Jr – the Musical Summer School

Event details

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 costumes face painting and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast there’s a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.

This camp (for 4-17 year olds) will run from Monday 31st July – Friday 4th August everyday 9.30-3.30 at The William Allitt Academy in Newhall, DE11 0TL. It is perfect for big fans of the Dreamworks film which features singing, dancing, and dynamic storytelling that all culminate in a fully staged musical.
