SHREK THE MUSICAL Brings Ogre-the-Top Fun to Athens Theater

From January 21 to February 13, don’t be surprised if you notice a dragon flying above DeLand or an ogreriffic swamp smell wafting your way, because Shrek the Musical (TYA version) is about to take to the scene of the theater of Athens.

Director Craig Uppercue is thrilled to bring this musical based on DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar-winning film to the Athens theater, not only because of how fun and humorous the show is, but also because of the moral. woven into this modern fairy tale. “SHREK’s story is a great example of how our preconceived notions of beauty and what should be socially acceptable can cause alienation and harm…and how these notions are often totally wrong. Even the most seemingly ugly, gruff, or weird characters perhaps the ones with the most beautiful character on the inside.”

Join Shrek (Noah Clark), the irresistibly entertaining donkey (Iris M. Johnson) and a love-loving dragon (Jonathan Febo) as they attempt to save Shrek’s swamp, rescue Princess Fiona (Sarah McKinney) and outmaneuver pint-sized felon Farquaad (Jonathan Febo).

The Athens Theater invites you to join this group of fairytale misfits as they struggle with conformity in an effort to return to their “big, bright, beautiful world” in the land of fantasy.

Hearing-impaired audiences are invited to join in the fun as a special performance performed in ASL is scheduled for Friday, February 4 at 7:30 p.m.
