LTO announces show dates and times for the upcoming production, “Shrek the Musical”. The show is directed by Sandee Hardy-Hagen with technical direction by Victoria Bartkowiak. The Choreographer is Kyra Rahn and the Vocal Director is Sarah Friesen. Performance sponsor is Federated Insurance Company.
Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, ‘Shrek the Musical’ is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. However, isolation ends when familiar fairy tale creatures appear and invade his domain. Shrek then begins an adventure to the kingdom Far Far Away to regain his swamp and help the fairy tale creatures. As usual for fairy tales, his adventure will conclude with a happy ending.
