Shrek: The Musical

By Cameron Rasmusson
Reader Staff

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.

Catch Shrek April 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. A family show matinee with $7 tickets for children 10 and under begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, with doors opening at 1:30 p.m. On Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m., students age 18 and under can take advantage of student discount night with $10 tickets.
