This production is funded in part by a grant from the Southbridge Cultural Council, a local agency, supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Presented by permission through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. Music by Jeanine Tesori. Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire.
Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who 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. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.
