Running Time: 2 hours
To close out the season, director Nancy Rich returns to the Cary Players stage to direct a fan favorite - Shrek The Musical.
A grumpy, gruff, ogre's hermit existence is thrown into chaos when a group of homeless fairy tale characters burst upon his swamp, seeking refuge from the persecution of the cruel, vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.
In Shrek's effort to restore his privacy, he cuts a deal with Farquaad, and sets out to rescue the beautiful princess Fiona, who turns out to be quite different from his princess expectations.
With dazzling sets, whimsical puppetry, high energy dance numbers, and laughs by the minute, Shrek the Musical transforms the contemporary children's book and popular animated feature film into a stage musical that is sure to entertain and make audiences believers in happy endings for all. Performances run through May 3, 2020, at the Cary Arts Center.
