SHREK THE MUSICAL JR.
TAMPA BAY TRIPLE THREAT THEATRE
Nasty will be nice and Tampa will be ogre-the-moon when Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre presents their production of Shrek The Musical JR. on November 19, 2016 at 1:00 pm & 5:00 pm. The family-friendly musical comedy 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 succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others. Join over 50 of our talented students as we take you on this fun musical journey that reminds us all to believe in ourselves, celebrate our differences and learn that the best things are possible when we work together!
Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre is collaborating with Carrollwood Elementary & Hammond Elementary on a fundraiser for their Parent Teacher Associations. We will be giving 15% of ticket sales back to each of their PTAs after the production. This is a win/win for the students, arts education, the theatre and our community.
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, new tenants disturb his peaceful swamp: fairy-tale 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.
With music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek the Musical Jr. is based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film and the book Shrek by William Steig. The original Broadway production, starring Brian d’Arcy James as Shrek and Sutton Foster as Fiona, ran for twelve months and received a total of twelve Drama Desk Awards and eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical.
