Mayville’s Children’s Theater has chosen Shrek the Musical, Jr. for their summer production. Kids who are going into 5th -9th grades are encouraged to sign-up for this fun filled play. A fee of $20, which includes t-shirt, a pizza party, a cast party picnic, and special gifts, will be collected at the time of registration.
It’s a “big bright beautiful world” for everyone’s favorite ogre, based on the Oscar-winning Dreamworks Animation film. Adapted for children performers and featuring a host of over-the-top roles, there’s a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.
In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre, Shrek, finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who’ve been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad he’s handed a task - if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona fro the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him.
Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek Jr. is a fun show for the whole family. Mayville Children’s Theater is in its 24th season and is directed by Ellen Schmid, vocal director Tammy Schellpfeffer, and Christy Dobbratz - choreographer.
Any questions, call Ellen at 387-3474. Please sign up during Summer School registration - between April 27th @ 3:30 - May 8 @ 4:00- online at www.mayvilleschools.com . The cast size will be limited to 65 students.
Performances will be held at the Mayville Middle School from July 15 - July 19, 2015.
