Westfield School Choir Department to present “Shrek: The Musical”

The Westfield Area Middle and High School Choir Department is proud to present Shrek: The Musical in four performances, November 3-6.

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 theres more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek....” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

Performances are scheduled November 3-6, Thursday through Saturday at 7:00 p.m. nightly, and Sunday will be a 2:00 p.m. matinee.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens, and $4 for students and children. Children 2 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://wasdmusic.booktix.com or at the door.
