BAD AXE — The Bad Axe School District presents “Shrek the Musical.” This two-act production features an unconventional love story between a green ogre, Shrek (Casey Sheppard), and the beautiful princess Fiona (Danielle Maurer). Shrek’s sidekick, Donkey (Wil Hobkirk), the “short” and conceited, Lord Farquaad (Collin Martin), the fairytale leader, Pinocchio (Joey Van Erp), the scary but love-hopeful, Dragon (Aurora Kreugar) and the witty cookie, Gingy (Melanie Rogers) add endless humor to the storyline.
This production features 45 students ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade, plus additional students participating in set construction, set design, lighting, sound, make-up and the orchestra band. The creative collaboration of the many actors, singers, dancers, musicians, designers, costumers, and technical crew will make this production one not-to-miss.
In addition, there will be a Dinner Theater performance on March 25 at 6 p.m. This special performance will be catered by the Pasta House of Kinde. These limited tickets are $35 and are by advance sale only; contact the Bad Axe High School for more information.
