Released in 2001, the movie “Shrek” was a massive success and went on to become a staple of many childhoods for years to come.
Now local residents can relive the story with all the spectacle, bombast and flair of a live stage musical. More than 70 Sandpoint-area kids and their adult mentors worked to bring to life the story of an ogre tasked with rescuing a beautiful princess. Sharply funny in its send-up of fairy tale conventions, “Shrek” grounds the laughs with a message about the importance of inner beauty.
