The Rose Theater’s 2016-2017 Season continues with another wonderful production! I am very excited to see this show with my family, and watch this wonderful story come to life on stage!
Everyone’s favorite ogre is back and bigger than ever in Shrek The Musical (TYA), the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning hit film by DreamWorks Animation.
“This version of Shrek The Musical, which has been adapted specifically for young audiences, demonstrates a unique lens and way of telling the Shrek story,” says Rose Artistic Director Matthew Gutschick, referring to the production’s TYA designation. (Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) scripts are slightly condensed version of the Broadway show that are just as entertaining as the original but easier for younger theatergoers to sit through.)
Shrek The Musical is recommended for families of children ages five and up. The show is approximately 70 minutes long without an intermission.
When: Sept. 30 through Oct. 16, 2016
Performances: Fridays at 7 p.m, and Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. (Oct. 2 and 9 only). The 2 p.m. show on Saturday, Oct. 8 will be interpreted for people who are deaf or hard of hearing; the 5 p.m. show on Saturday, Oct. 8 is designated as sensory-friendly, with special accommodations made for families attending with a child on the autism spectrum.
Tickets for Shrek The Musical are $20. Discount ticket vouchers are available at all area Hy-Vee stores. Members of The Rose receive four free tickets to the production, but the public is advised that Rose memberships are limited, and are close to selling out; The Rose does not expect memberships to be available for purchase beyond the production of Shrek The Musical.
