Shrek has been a wildly popular movie franchise and the stage adaptation Shrek The Musical, a smash hit on Broadway. For those who are not familiar with the story of the bad tempered but good hearted ogre named Shrek, Alex Haley, PAC's director of programming and marketing describes the musical as "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 is presented by North Cascades Bank and Clifton Larson Allen with the support of Marilyn Everhart, Avenue Car Wash: Natalie Hoback Noyd & David Noyd Showbiz Northwest, Lloyd & Mary Thompson, Dennis & Sharron Johnson, and Dave & Linda Herald.
