Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek the Musical is a TONY Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Matthew Grandpré directs this BRCC Children’s Theatre Workshop production. Shrek the Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
