Players Club of Swarthmore Announces SHREK THE MUSICAL
Everyone's Favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle. The Players Club of Swarthmore, Children's Series presents Shrek The Musial (Theatre for Young Audiences Version), Feb. 1-10, for eight performances at 614 Fairview Ave. in Swarthmore. Ally Greene Perez and Justin Caiazzo direct this entertaining musical, with choreography by Olivia Goodwin, and musical direction by Eric Carter-Thompson. Buy tickets online at www.pcstheater.org. Shrek The Musical features songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, and Change ) and a side-splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.
An unlikely hero, Shrek (Avery Leach, Upper Darby) finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside the wisecracking Donkey (Kat Lemon, Swarthmore) and a feisty princess Fiona (Kristin Hegel, Philadelphia) who resists her rescue. Additional cast members include Mike Sokolowski, Philadelphia; Tess Sinatra, Blue Bell; Meg Cranney, Philadelphia; Lisa Bassett, Collegeville; Chaz Meyers, Media; Caitlin Naylor, Springfield; Marissa Capuano, Aston and Jeffrey Martin, Upper Darby. Shrek The Musical proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, is irreverent fun for the whole family and and other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.
Shrek The Musical runs from Friday, Mar. 1, through Sunday, Mar. 10. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:00 p.m. Sunday performances will be at both 11:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. Performances will be held on the "Second Stage" on the second floor above the lobby. After each show the actors will be available in the lobby for photos and autographs.
