Playhouse Theatre Group of Central Wisconsin is ‘OGRE-the-moon’ to present their production of Shrek The Musical JR. February 29-March 2, 2024 at SPASH Theater in Stevens Point! This family-friendly musical comedy follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others.
Shrek finds that his peaceful swamp is disturbed by new tenants: fairytale misfits — including Pinocchio, the Ugly Duckling, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf — who have been banished there by the villainous Lord Farquaad. In order to gain back his land, Shrek makes a deal with Farquaad to rescue the feisty princess Fiona from a tower guarded by a fierce dragon. Setting off with his faithful companion, Donkey, Shrek begins the journey of a lifetime filled with adventure and hilarity.
A cast of over 50 Central Wisconsin students from 6th through 12th grade look forward to performing Shrek The Musical JR! This show is directed by Hannah Formella-Zdroik and Eve Maurer, with musical direction from Allie Weaver, choreography by Makenna Bolton and costumes done by Emily Abbott. Allie Weaver will also lead the Children's Choirs which perform before the show, made up of over 60 area Kindergarteners through 5th graders.
