Shrek the Musical
"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.Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, SHREK THE MUSICAL is a Tony award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs and a sidesplitting book. The musical numbers are a collection of musical styles from Ballads to R & B to Broadway dance numbers with some pop/rock elements. It 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. Irreverently fun for the whole family, SHREK THE MUSICAL proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

The Drowsey Chaperone
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record - the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, a female aviator and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical”, The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
