Shrek the Musical

Shrek the Musical

February 22 to March 16, 2014 | On the Alliance Stage
Part of the Family Series

Best enjoyed by children in grades K–6
Run time: approximately 75 minutes

This production is featured as part of our FAMILIES Centerstage event on March 8.

A delight for the whole family, this musical based on the beloved Dreamworks film character and William Steig’s 1990s book will charm even the hardest ogre-ness out of everyone. This wonderful musical ran for 12 months on Broadway and is now adapted to a family friendly one-act experience. 

Watch the ogre Shrek leave his home and give up his privacy to rescue the princess Fiona, herself under a curse that makes her nervous about her looks. In this fairy tale world, there is someone for everyone no matter what they look like. Under the guidance of theatrical magician Rosemary Newcott, this show will transport audiences to a rich visual experience with a hilarious take on fairy tales. Magic for the kids, romance for the romantics, and snarky humor for all.

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
