Description

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen 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.

THIS IS A PREVIEW PERFORMANCE OF OUR UNDERSTUDIES!

What is a Preview performance?  

A preview performance is a chance for the cast & directing team to "test out" our show with a live audience. 

We want to make sure the story is clear to our audience members. We are listening to every laugh, sigh, and sound of confusion from you all! This will allow us to tweak and fine tune the family adventure that is Shrek before our official opening night on Thursday May 2nd at 7pm. 

This specific preview will feature our understudies who have been working tirelessly at learning two entirely different tracks. A principal role & an ensemble role! Our understudy program ensures that we have people ready to cover a role should something happen to our principal actor/actress. It also allows for multiple students to receive the experience of a principal role. 

This is also a chance for our technical (lights/sound/set) elements to have a go at a non-stop show. However- please note, if something goes completely wrong, we reserve the right to adjust & restart that moment. 

Thank you for supporting the arts here at Metea Valley High School. We appreciate all of your feedback on this preview performance & will see you again at our final performances May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at 7pm!
