The Bologna Performing Arts Center presents Shrek: The Musical Friday, November 16, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at the Ticket Office or online.

DreamWorks Theatricals and NETworks Presentations, LLC. are pleased to announce that SHREK: THE MUSICAL will play at the Bologna Performing Arts Center, Friday, November 16, 2012 @ 7:30 p.m.

An entirely new musical which opened on Broadway December 2009, SHREK: THE MUSICAL is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek!, as well as the DreamWorks Animation film Shrek, the first chapter of the Shrek movie series.

SHREK: THE MUSICAL tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren’t only found in fairy tales.

“We are thrilled to send SHREK: THE MUSICAL to theatres across the country,” said Bill Damaschke, President of DreamWorks Theatricals, “and for American families to experience their favorite ogre and fairy tale creatures live on stage.”

“Everyone in the Delta is so excited about seeing this Academy Award-winning film brought to life on the Bologna stage. We’ve got families coming from across the state to watch their favorite characters – Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, and Gingy – in this Tony Award-winning musical,” said Laura Howell, Interim Executive Director of the Bologna Performing Arts Center.
