Stage Center’s School of Performing Arts (SoPA) proudly announces their production of the smash-hit Broadway musical, DreamWorks’ Shrek The Musical (Junior Edition). The new production will open December 1, 2022 for a five-performance run at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse on the Centenary College Campus. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 14.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori, and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears. “Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek. Direction by Jared Watson; Musical direction by Liesl Cruz; Choreography by Kaitlyn Brown.
