With abundant opportunities for imagination and a host of over-the-top roles, there's a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR. It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek 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.
Shrek — He may be a big, scary, green ogre to the rest of the world, but as the story reveals, he's really just a big fellow with a big heart.
Fiona — She may appear to be an ideal princess straight from the fairy tale books, but there is more to her than that stereotypical image. She is an audacious young lady with a wonderful sense of humor and - surprisingly - manners akin to those of a teenage boy.
Lord Farquaad — A very short man with gargantuan ambition! He is solely interested in gaining as much power as possible.
Donkey — A loud, fast-talking animal with no concept of "quiet time."
Dragon — A spunky, fire-breathing dragon who finds surprising love with Donkey.
Pinocchio — The wooden boy who cannot tell a lie without being belied by his growing nose. Pinocchio begins in a sour mood about his second-class status but ends the story as a natural leader among the Fairy Tale Creatures.
The Three Little Pigs — The classic three little pigs with a German twist. A fun and dynamic trio.
Ugly Duckling — He may be bitter about his unfortunate appearance, but he does find camaraderie among his fellow fairy tale outcasts.
Big Bad Wolf — A pretty tame wolf who is reduced to wearing Little Red Ridinghood's grandmother's dressing gown.
