Middle School presents Shrek the Musical, April 27-29

The Millburn Middle School Spring Musical, Shrek the Musical, will be held on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th at 7 p.m.  A Sunday matinee will be presented at 1 p.m. on April 29th.

Shrek the Musical opened on Broadway in December 2008. It is based on the DreamWorks Animation’s film Shrek and William Steig’s book Shrek! With music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, the musical adaptation is a family-friendly and slightly irreverent retelling of the story of an introverted ogre who learns that life is more fulfilling when you open your heart to find good friends and true love. Complete with dozens of fairytale favorites, Shrek will leave its audience humming along to “Freak Flag,” an anthem of self-acceptance and nonconformity which is one of the musical’s most memorable numbers.
