Nasty will be nice and Porter will be ogre-the-moon when National Youth Theater students present their production of Shrek The Musical JR. beginning March 29th, it was announced today by Freddie Gershon, CEO of Music Theatre International (MTI). The family-friendly musical comedy, directed by David Horn, follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others.
Shrek The Musical JR. follows an ogre named Shrek who has learned the hard way that “people hate the things they cannot understand.” For many years he has protected himself from the hurtful actions of those who are scared of him by living as a recluse in a cozy cesspit. One day, his peaceful swamp is disturbed by new tenants: fairytale misfits — including Pinocchio, the Ugly Duckling, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Three Pigs, and the Big Bad Wolf — have been banished there by the villainous Lord Farquaad. In order to gain back his land, Shrek makes a deal with Farquaad to rescue the feisty Princess Fiona from a tower guarded by a fierce dragon. Setting off with his faithful companion, Donkey, Shrek begins the journey of a lifetime filled with adventure, romance, and hilarity.
National Youth Theater will present Shrek The Musical JR. on Fri March 29th, 7pm, Sat March 30th, 2pm & 6pm, Sun March 31st, 2pm, Sat April 6th, 2pm & 6pm, Sun April 7th, 2pm at Porter High School PAC at 22625 Sandy Lane, Porter, 77365.
