Kicking the 58th season off with a bang, The Wagon Wheel Theatre presents the Tony Award winning musical based on the DreamWorks film, which made “Shrek” a household name. Ending its national tour in April of this year, Shrek, The Musical makes it regional debut only at the Wagon Wheel Theatre in Warsaw June 5-15.
"Shrek…is nonetheless a triumph of comic imagination with a heart as big and warm as Santa's. It is the most ingeniously wacky, transcendently tasteless Broadway musical since The Producers, and more family-friendly...." said USA Today.
All your favorite Shrek characters make an appearance including Donkey, Fiona, Lord Farquaad, Pinocchio, Gingy and a baker’s dozen more. Similar to the movie, the stage musical features Neil Diamond’s number one hit, “I’m a Believer” (originally performed by the Monkees) which headlines the riotous score.
Will Dawson, Director of Operations says you will be blown away by what you see. “Our premiere production team is currently working on what will be extravagant costuming and a VERY LARGE dragon that is integral to this wonderful musical. Shrek, The Musical will be one of those memorable theatrical experiences that you will never forget. You will want to bring your kids, grandkids, neighbors kids, your inner kid…you get the point. You will not be disappointed,” says Dawson.
