October 2, 2018, Santa Rosa, CA— The Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) Theatre Arts Department presents “Shrek the Musical,” a play based on the Oscar-winning film that blends romantic adventure and irreverent silliness, written for audiences aged 6 and above. This musical will run on select dates Nov. 16-Dec. 2 at Maria Carrillo High School’s theatre at 6975 Montecito Boulevard, Santa Rosa 95409.
The show features the unlikely green hero, his “noble steed,” Donkey, and a ragtag mashup of fairytale characters as they rescue the feisty Princess Fiona from the evil (and vertically-challenged) Lord Farquaad. It features memorable songs like “Morning Person,” “Freak Flag,” and “I’m a Believer.” This zany hit proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
- Nov. 16, 17, 23, 24, 29, 30 and Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
- Nov. 17, 18, 24, 25 and Dec. 1 and 2 at 1:30 p.m.
Parking is free.
