Everyone’s favorite ogre comes to life in Peoria when Arizona Broadway Theatre presents Shrek The Musical, a lively song-and-dance-filled stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning DreamWorks animated film. The show will run from July 15-August 14, 2016.
Featuring Jason E. Simon as Shrek, back on the ABT stage after huge acclaim as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof earlier this year. The second to the last show in a well-received Season 11, ABT now brings Valley audiences this faraway kingdom with a twist. In the Kingdom of Duloc things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a headstrong princess. Throw in a donkey that won’t shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, 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.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, this live stage version of Shrek The Musical was nominated for eight Tony Awards including best score and best book for a musical when it originally opened on Broadway in 2008. “Shrek the Musical” is part romance, part fractured fairy tale and 100% irreverent fun for the whole family.
