Student performers in Shrek the Musical

Thank you to everyone who supported this year's All-School musical to make each of the three shows a sold-out success

Shrek the Musical involved nearly 100 students from grades 4 through 12, who performed on stage, worked behind the scenes and played music in the pit orchestra. The show was a delightful mix of playful humor and touching moments, and it concluded with the popular song "I'm a Believer," which got the entire audience on their feet, singing along!

In this odd and hilarious fairy tale, an unlikely hero 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.

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 (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) 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.
