The Alliance Theater will present SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the beloved Dreamworks film character and William Steig’s 1990s book, February 22 through March 16, 2014 as part of its Alliance Stage Family Series. This fun musical was a hit on Broadway and has now been condensed to a family-friendly, one-hour production.
Watch the ogre Shrek leave his home and give up his privacy to rescue the princess Fiona, herself under a curse that makes her nervous about her looks. In this fairy tale world, there is someone for everyone no matter what they look like. Expect hilarity to ensue.
In addition, The Alliance will also host their annual fundraising event FAMILIES Centerstage on March 8. For one day only, the Woodruff Arts Center Galleria transforms into “Shrek Land,” a family fun fair with live performances, arts, crafts and music for the whole family to enjoy! Confirmed participants for this year’s event include Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Botanical Gardens, Center for Puppetry Arts, Expressions in Motion Dance, Fernbank Museum, High Museum of Art, Macaroni Kid, and Zoo Atlanta. Tickets for FAMILIES Centerstage include admission to either the 1:00pm or 4:00pm performance of SHREK, with the festival happening in between.
General admission tickets can be bought online and they are selling fast! Starting at $20, some performances are already sold out. Keep in mind that while this is a family-friendly show, the Alliance suggests children be five or older as some content may be inappropriate for younger kids.
