Orpheus Theatre Brings ‘Shrek The Musical’ to Oneonta This Weekend [Audio, Video]
Orpheus Theatre's final production of the season, "Shrek The Musical", hits the Goodrich Theater stage on the SUNY Oneonta campus tonight, tomorrow and on Mother's Day. This wraps up a celebration of Orpheus Theatre's 30th Anniversary and promises lots of laughs and fun for the whole family.
Here's the storyline from Broadway.com: "Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?"
