This September the McKinney Youth Theatre is proud to present Shrek the Musical.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, Shrek brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get crazy when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in an over-talkative donkey, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of chaos that calls for a real hero.

Shrek the Musical

Shrek the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!  Featuring a terrific score of all new songs, big laughs and great dancing, Shrek has been hailed as the “ ... funniest new musical on Broadway!”

Shrek the Musical is a Tony Award® winning stage musical now lands in McKinney for the first time, with performances at Heard-Craig Hall, 306 N. Church St., McKinney, TX 75069

Join McKinney Youth Theater as they bring this hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to dazzling life in a way you’ve never seen before.
