MONTVILLE, NJ- SHREK THE MUSICAL is the spring production for the Montville Township High School Drama Club. The performers will stage the Tony Award-winning musical Thursday through Sunday, March 1 through 4 at MTHS. SHREK THE MUSICAL is based on the 2001 Dreamworks movie. Tickets to this fun family production are only $15 for adults and $12 for students and senior citizens. Show times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

The cast features MTHS junior Jason Joo as SHREK and senior Brooke Nagel as Princess Fiona.

“There is a lot more to the character of SHREK than people think,” said Joo. “All throughout the show he is just trying to find himself. He realizes he can be something more – something bigger – not just what the people want him to be.”
