Norwood 7th and 8th Graders Present "Shrek the Musical Jr." May 5-7

Everyone's favorite ogre is coming to the Norwood stage on May 5, 6, and 7 in a hilarious performance based on the Oscar-winning, smash-hit movie Shrek. Save the date(s) and get ready for a fabulous fairy-tale adventure!
"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 the Musical Jr. brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears, including a powerful message for the whole family.

Norwood's seventh and eighth graders will present four performances:

Thursday, May 5, at 7:00 p.m. (7th Grade Cast)
Friday, May 6, at 7:00 p.m. (7th Grade Cast)
Saturday, May 7, at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. (8th Grade Cast)
