Dallas gets a make-ogre when the Dallas Summer Musicals brings SHREK THE MUSICAL to the Music Hall at Fair Park, September 28 – October 17, 2010. An entirely new show, Shrek, The Musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek!, as well as the DreamWorks Animation movie Shrek.
Shrek, The Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren’t only found in fairy tales.
The Shrek Cast
The role of everyone’s favorite swamp-dwelling ogre, Shrek will be played by Eric Petersen, who recently appeared as the socially challenged Barfee in the National tour of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Haven Burton, also from the Broadway Company will play the feisty Princess Fiona. Alan Mingo, Jr. is Shrek’s lovably annoying best friend Donkey. Todd Buonopane plays the vertically challenged villain Lord Farquaad.
Shrek, The Musical features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer® Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline, or Change), and is directed by Tony® Award-nominee Jason Moore (Avenue Q) and Tony® and Emmy® Award-winner Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Promises Promises).
