MMS: Shrek The Musical

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.

English teacher, Mr. Mark Oppel, is completing his 22nd  production as director on the MMS stage. He is also responsible for the choreography, and  sound and light design. Ms. Elizabeth Bewie, Middle School music teacher, serves as the vocal director. The MMS musical is co-produced by Mrs. Marina Reilly and Mr. Dominick Pisa whose responsibilities include set design, costumes, box office, and stage crew. The set decoration has been completed by art teacher Mrs. Claudia Sohr. The set for Shrek the Musical has been constructed by Mr. Rick Cimino.

Tickets are $15 and are on sale online at mms.booktix.com. They may also be purchased in the guidance office after school and will be available at the door on the day of the performance.
