Event Details

Everyone’s favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle, based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film and outrageous Broadway 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.
Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
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.
CenterStage’s Tapestry Theatre is an all-abilities theater company that embraces the diversity of area actors, offering all an opportunity to shine as performers. Tapestry casts actors with special needs in lead roles, and peer actors as understudies to create a shared theatrical performance. Actors enjoy the magic of theater in a fun, welcoming, safe, and inclusive community. Our participants discover talents they never knew they had, make connections with people who have differing interests and abilities, and form long-lasting friendships. By challenging societal perceptions and showcasing everyone’s strengths, we continue to embrace our philosophy of “Applauding All Abilities.”
