‘Shrek’ opens Thursday night

Glencoe-Silver Lake High School opens its fall musical production of “Shrek” this Thursday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. at the GSL High School Auditorium.
The musical, based on the 2001 DreamWorks Animation motion picture and the book by William Steig, is centered around Shrek, an irritable green ogre, who loves the solitude in his swamp and finds his life interrupted when an abundance of fairytale characters are exiled there by Lord Farquaad.
He embarks on a journey with Donkey to find Lord Farquaad and ask him to send the fairytale characters back, but ends up meeting interesting characters along the way, including Princess Fiona, with whom he falls in love and “rescues.”
This year’s fall musical is directed by Kay Wilson, with help from Dawn Peterson as assistant director, and features a number of songs and dance numbers choregraphed by Alicia Beste.
“Shrek” will be performed at the GSL High School Auditorium on Nov. 13-15 and Nov. 20-22, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.
