‘Shrek the Musical’
The Hoosick Falls Central School Drama Club will present ‘Shrek the Musical,’ Friday through Sunday, April 4 to 6. Thanks to the continuing support by the school, the Drama Club continues to offer free admission. The story follows a lovable green ogre as he strikes a deal with the scheming Lord Farquaad to rid the swamp of fairy tale creatures and rescue Princess Fiona from a dragon-protected tower. Teamed up with the incessantly chatty Donkey, he sets off on what seems to be a simple task, but it will forever change him and the land of Duloc. While the musical has a great deal of similarities with the movie, there are also some surprises. The show is perfect for all ages and has great messages about love, friendship, and diversity. There will be a brief intermission where concessions will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the HFCS Performing Arts through the student-run Performing Arts Council group. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Call director Rob Allen at 518-686-7321, extension 1106, for details.
