WHS fine arts department presents "Shrek the Musical" April 12-15

Advanced reserved-seating tickets now available to purchase in the high school office!

From Mrs. Cherie Johnson, co-musical director:

Shrek the Musical was a huge and creative undertaking! The set was a challenge, the costuming was a challenge, the choreography was a challenge. It was a big project. I am proud of how our students worked so hard to bring this wonderful project to life. Our lead roles -- Jackson Taylor as Shrek, Mattie Pfeiffer as Fiona, Aaron Redding as Donkey, and Austin Abramo as Lord Farquaad -- brought amazing talent and terrific work ethic to their roles and made them come to life. Because of their talent and leadership, the ensemble followed suit and added their own special touches to their individual roles. It was those little moments that made the show great, not just good: the pigs running and squealing off stage, the guard screeching at the sight of the ogre, the witch waving her feathered wand in Shrek’s face, and Pinocchio hiding behind the ogre sign. One of my favorite parts of this project was watching three 7th graders and a junior bring a dragon to life. At first it was a big awkward puppet. But there was a metamorphosis that resulted in a love struck, controlling, and singing dragon who had the hots for Donkey and ridded the world of the petty evil Farquaad! I am also tremendously grateful to the back stage leadership of Ally Dey and Avery Spicka. They kept what went on behind the scenes organized and running smoothly for every scene. Great job crew! Mr. Boe chose this musical to show off the talents of so many students. It was an excellent choice and a great experience!

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?
