Beware of Ogres: Riverdale's Shrek Jr. dazzled audiences
The Riverdale Raiders Theater presented their Spring Musical Shrek, Jr. March 1-4, 2017
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions.
When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
With abundant opportunities for imaginative sets and costumes, and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast, there's a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.
It’s Thurday-Saturday, March 2nd-4th at 7pm, with a Silent Auction at 6:30pm nightly, and the matinee was Saturday at 2pm. Parking was available behind the gym. Tickets available at the door: $10 for adults, $8 for children, teachers, and senior. Cash and checks accepted for ticket purchases and the silent auction, sorry no credit cards.
