It’ll be on for young and old when North Sydney Kids Musical Theatre Company’s production of Shrek the Musical Jr. lights up the stage at the Independent Theatre on September 16, 17, 23, 24 and 25.
Shrek the Musical Jr. is based on the much-loved Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation films and the hit Broadway musical. In this youth theatre adaptation, the lovable ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of madcap characters in an all-singing, all-dancing fractured fairy-tale. The magical musical adventure includes a not-so-dashing princess rescue, unscary dragons, dastardly villains and faithful friends, with plenty of irreverent fun along the way.
More than 60 talented local kids will take to the stage in Shrek the Musicial this September.
The hilarious and heart-warming show will be performed by the 60 talented girls and boys in each cast from North Sydney Kids Musical Theatre Company with daily performances from both the Junior Cast (ages 6 to 13) and the Senior Cast (ages 13 to 17) during the show’s run. Shrek the Musical Jr. is the latest production from the company’s director Sarah Jarvis who has in recent years created sell-out youth musical theatre shows including Seussical the Musical Jnr, Aladdin the Musical Jnr and 13 the Musical.
