In February, Align Entertainment will launch the first ever production of Shrek the Musical on the West Coast. The musical, based on the 2001 Dreamworks production was nominated for 6 Tony Awards.
The show is based on the Oscar-Award winning Dreamworks movie, and follows the hilarious story of Shrek and Donkey as they embark on an unexpected journey to rescue a beautiful princess with an ugly secret. Becoming an unlikely champion, Shrek is enlisted to petition the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.
In line with the theme of the show, producers have teamed up with the Stop A Bully Foundation, which helps bullied students all across Canada. They will be donating 10 per cent of the profits to the foundation.
Location: Michael J Fox Theatre at Burnaby, BC
