SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Audiences’ favorite ogre will take center stage in the Terrill Middle School Spring Musical, Shrek The Musical JR. from March 20 through March 22. 

Shrek leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.  Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical, Shrek The Musical JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family. 

Once upon a time, in a far-away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
