Based on the smash-hit DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award®-winning fairy tale adventure. "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.

This one is pure fun. Tesori’s music is so full of life and whimsy. And stoked long-time Beck Center actor Gilgamesh (G.A.) Taggett is returning as Shrek after being on the national tour of Annie for the past few years
