Shrek The Musical


Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.  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.

With abundant opportunities for imaginative sets and costumes, and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast, there’s a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.

2016 K-5 Experience

– To sign up fill out the following registration form: K-5 Registration Form
– Registration Deadline January 7th
– Scholarship Application Deadline January 6th
– Directors: Samantha Hecker, Kate Drummond, and Tara Kaine

This year’s K-5 play will be a double bill! This means there are many exciting roles for beginners and strong actors alike!

We are trying out a new format. Because all students who register will be given parts, we are going to fold auditions in to the rehearsal process.   All students registered should come to our first rehearsal on January 11th. More information will be shared at the info night on January 4th @ 6:00pm in the auditorium.

Our main play: “Putting on Romeo and Juliet” was developed by our 2015 play-writing class last spring. It is a hilarious parody honoring the creative chaos we all love about putting on a play, with many silly and fun characters every young actor will find a role to spark their imagination!

Our second play is called “House of Cards” it is a thoughtful play that deals with the negative effects of cliques and power dynamics in schools.


March 24th @ 7pm, 25th @ 9am & 7pm, and 26th @ 2pm.
