July 11-26 (on stage at the Arts Center of Cannon County July 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 & 26 at 7:30PM and July 13, 19, 20 & 26 at 2:00PM.)

Believe all ogre again! Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film is the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre brought to life on stage. 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, 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.
