Directed by Gail Jones
Ojai Art Center
113 S. Montgomery St. Ojai
Everything’s coming up Ogres in “Shrek the Musical,” the Broadway adaptation of Shrek, borne from Dreamwork’s hit movie that was sort of a parody of Disney animations. But it instantly appealed to adults because of its wit, sense of fun and allusions to popular culture. Experience what’s up in Duloc with the gang: Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Farquaad; to the tune of the Grammy award winning musical score.
