Theatre Arlington’s Shrek the Musical Jr. Opens This Weekend

Theatre Arlington's all-youth production of Shrek the Musical Jr. opens Friday, February 23 and runs on weekends through March 11.

This musical, directed by Cindy Honeycutt, starts at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Click here for ticket information.

It's a "big, bright, beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairy tale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. 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.

Theatre Arlington is also hosting a Donuts with Donkey event after the 2 p.m. performance on March 10. Tickets are $25 for the event.
