MAY 2019 | THE TURNER CENTRE | KERIKERI
Our production of Shrek the Musical was a great success, drawing big audiences and much laughter and praise. The cast and crew committed to a great deal of time and effort to pull off this wonderful show, taking on coaches for singing, dancing and voice. The leads who played Shrek and Donkey adopted Scottish and American accents for the show, we had three Princess Fiona’s of different ages, the diminutive Lord Faarquad played his entire performance on his knees, and they were all joined by a large gaggle of wonderful fairy-tale creatures.
The Stage Door team became like a large Shrek family, and were sad when it was all over!
Next up is the funny and poignant Calendar Girls, directed by Jenny Blackler and produced by Jackie Matthews.
AUGUST 1st – 4th at THE TURNER CENTRE
SHREK THE MUSICAL is based on the Dreamworks Animation and the book by William Steig. Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. Music by Jeanine Tesori. Originally produced on Broadway by Dreamworks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions.
