Townspeople!  Throw down your torches and pitchforks, embrace you inner ogre, and trek to the 7th Street Theatre to see Shrek the Musical on July 26, 27, and/or 28.

This Broadway musical is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks movie and the book by William Steig.  It has only recently been released for amateur productions in June 2013, so the 7th Street Kids production will be one of the first!

For those who are not familiar with the story – Shrek is an ogre who was abandoned by his parents at the tender age of seven, as all traditional ogres are.   He escaped from the townspeople (and their torches and pitchforks) and has made a comfortable home for himself in the swamp. He is content until a perfectionist with serious control issues, Lord Farquaad, banishes all of the non-conforming Fairy Tale Creatures from his city to Shrek’s swamp.  Shrek and his annoying but faithful companion, Donkey, are compelled to go on a journey to regain the swamp, rescue a princess,  and help the Fairy Tale Creatures get an “ever after”.  On their way, Shrek discovers the value of friendship and each meets his own true love.  Will they also find their own happy ending?

Tickets are on sale at Harbor Drug, Rosevear’s, and brownpaprertickets.com.  They are also available at the theater box office one hour before each performance.  Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students and senior citizens, and $5 for children 12 and under.

Come and see the show that shows us how “What makes us special makes us strong!”
