Teesside Musical Theatre Company presents Shrek.
Teesside Musical Theatre Company are back with a bang!
After last Autumn’s well received productions of Copacabana and Peter Pan, the company is presenting the north east amateur premiere of ‘Shrek the Musical’. 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.
Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters, including Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back!
But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her! A lot! But why does she always run off when the sun sets?
A feel good musical with great songs, fun, laughter and most of all a show for family and friends, so come along with parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, school pals et al.
