Shrek The Musical on Stage This Week in West Michigan
We have wonderful theater in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. There is fabulous professional theater from Broadway Grand Rapids and their Broadway touring shows, to incredible amateur theater with Grand Rapids Civic, Actors, Circle, Jewish, and more. But, there's more with Forest Hills Public Schools Summer Stock Theatre, and this weekend is a big one with everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek!
Amazingly talented theatre students from ALL THREE Forest Hills Public High Schools join together to present Shrek The Musical as part of a Summer Stock Theatre Program directed by David Howard.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.
Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
The show is this week, Thursday through Saturday, June 28 - 30, at the beautiful Forest Hills Fine Arts Center. Tickets are on sale now! Adults $10, Students $8 in advance(18 and under). All tickets at the door $10. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.
