SHREK THE MUSICAL
Playmakers of Baton Rouge announces its Summer Musical
Shrek the Musical TYA
Playmakers of Baton Rouge announces its summer musical, Shrek the Musical TYA from June 5 – 14, 2015 at the LSU Reilly Theatre.
Everyone’s favorite upside-down fairytale comes to the Reilly Theatre when Playmakers of Baton Rouge presents Shrek the Musical TYA, a song-and dance-filled stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning DreamWorks™ animated film.
For their 32nd season, Playmakers of Baton Rouge re-creates the fantasy Kingdom of Far Far Away—with many hilarious, irreverent twists. Instead of a knight riding a noble steed, the hero is Shrek, a swamp-dwelling ogre teamed up with a chatterbox donkey. And the princess? She’s the slightly temperamental Fiona. After Shrek rescues Fiona from a dragon-guarded tower, the two fall in love before she reveals there’s more to her than meets the eye. Other fairytale misfits add surprises: from a Gingerbread Man with an attitude to Three Blind Mice channeling their inner Dreamgirls.
Show dates are:
- Friday, June 5 at 7pm
- Saturday, June 6 at 11am and 2:30pm
- Sunday, June 7 at 2:30pm
- Saturday, June 13 at 11am and 2:30pm
- Sunday, June 14 at 2:30pm
