Shrek, The Musical’ from Raven Players

 Adventures and romance blossom in the colorful fairy tale ‘Shrek, The Musical’ from Raven Players. The beloved ogre accompanies spunky Princess Fiona, befriending an excitable donkey and playful dragon along the way. Its cheerful songs kept director Kerry Duvall singing in the car to the Broadway soundtrack, “I took my son to see this and fell in love with the show.” Calling it “upbeat” and “funny,” music director Kelly Considine agrees. A large custom dragon puppet is being constructed and Duvall has been working on exciting makeup designs. Join the cast at Sunday matinees for photos with the characters.
