Nasty will be nice and Sturgeon Bay will be “ogre”-the-moon when TJ Walker Middle School Allied Arts students present their production of Shrek The Musical Jr. on Dec. 8. The family-friendly musical comedy follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others.
Shrek’s unique story of discovery encourages each of us to examine our prejudices, review what we believe to be our limitations, and work to better understand ourselves and others. The actors and crew in this production have embarked on a similar journey, as students and teachers with many different interests have learned more about themselves and each other while collaborating toward the common goal of presenting this musical.
The public performance of Shrek Jr. is Dec. 8 at 7 pm. All performances will be at the Sturgeon Bay High School Auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and may be purchased at the SBHS auditorium beginning at 6 pm on Dec. 8. For more information, contact Leslie Hill at 920.746.5835 or [email protected]
