Shrek the Musical
YouthWorks

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, 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. ​Shrek​ ​brings all of the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story (and the hero!) than meets the eyes.

About Theater Works School Programs

Educators searching for arts integration programming that meets Common Core Standards are only a phone call away from affordable community resources.

Theater Works designs many of its productions with classroom integration in mind – from performances timed specifically so classrooms can attend during the school day, to study guides that teachers can download and present to their classrooms before the show and follow-up materials for student discussions after the performance.

Some productions offer teacher and student edition study guides that cover such subjects as the history of the shows to Vocabulary lessons for words found throughout the performances (fill in the blank and crossword puzzles, to information on the theatrical process and questions from the text of the play.

Both adults and youth learn best through participation and direct involvement. Using these materials teachers can help students gain an appreciation for theatre not just as a form of art but also English, History, Science, Math and other topics imperative to their social well-being.

These programs are developed so we can work together with educators to transform young people and communities through theatre arts.
