Shrek: The Musical, based on the Oscar Winning Dreamworks film, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life in a musical version presented by the Barn Junior actors from Jan. 17-26, 2014.
This show is filed with fun, music, dancing and loveable characters - all performed by the Barn Junior middle school and high school students and is part romance, part fairy tale and total enjoyment for the entire family; it is rated “PG” for all audiences, a spokesman for The Barn said.
In the story, Shrek leaves his home to rescue the Princess Fiona, who has been placed under a curse.
