The department is pleased to welcome back Sutton Foster to co-direct Shrek The Musical, for which she originated the role of Princess Fiona on Broadway. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, the Tony Award-winning musical features the same beloved characters, with some interesting twists. Shrek, the ogre content to live alone, plans to confront the prince to allow the fairy tale misfits to go back to their homes so he can remain a recluse. After being saved by Shrek, the overly friendly and fiercely loyal Donkey insists on joining him, and together they attempt to rescue Princess Fiona, who has her own dark secrets to hide. Fun for the whole family, Shrek The Musical proves that beauty truly is in the eye of the ogre.
Shrek The Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
