Holiday Entertainment Guide 2014 #10 Shrek The Musical At The Georgetown Palace Theatre

14879_fullGeorgetown’s Historic Palace Theatre brings SHREK THE MUSICAL to life onstage just in time for the Holiday Season, with a run of 27 scheduled performances from November 21st to December 29th!  The hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre is based on the 2001 Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film and William Steig‘s 1990 book SHREK!; the stage version has music by Jeanine Tesori and Book/Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and is directed by Clifford Butler for the Palace.

Featuring fabulous, colorful costumes, a terrific score of songs, big laughs, and great dancing, the story of SHREK goes something like this: In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, 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!
