Based on the Dreamworks film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony-Award-winning hilarious adventure that brings the beloved characters from the film to the stage. Follow the grumpy green ogre named Shrek as his hermit existence is thrown into chaos when a group of storybook favorites — Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Little Pigs and more — invade his swamp after being sent there by the short-tempered and comedic Lord Farquaad. To protect his swamp, Shrek agrees to save the lovely Princess Fiona — who has been waiting for her prince to rescue her — for Farquaad. With the help of his loyal sidekick, a talking donkey, Shrek learns that he’s not the only one that feels like a misfit and finds out what true love really means. Amidst dazzling puppetry, high-energy dance numbers, side-sticking jokes and over-the-top characters, Shrek The Musical turns the traditional fairy tale upside-down.
Dates will be announced with the schedule for UCF Celebrates the Arts.
