Fremont, OH, July 7, 2014– Fremont Community Teen Theatre and Co-Directors Jason Kramer and Delilah Foos, with special permission from Music Theatre International, are pleased to announce their upcoming production of “Shrek the Musical”, a musical comedy with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire.

“Shrek the Musical” is based on the 2001 Dreamworks movie, “Shrek” and William Steig’s book of the same title. Audiences will find the familiar characters just as lovable and memorable as in the movies, and will leave the theatre singing along with the pop-style songs, including “Big, Bright Beautiful World,” “I Know It’s Today,” “Welcome to Duloc,” “I Think I Got You Beat,” and “I’m a Believer.”

Joey Magnuson of Fremont plays the title role of Shrek, Cyrus Foos of Gibsonburg is his obnoxious but lovable friend Donkey, and Kyleigh Harrison of Burgoon plays the lovely Princess Fiona. Also featured is Matt Gerber of Clyde as the short villain, Lord Farquaad. The remainder of the cast of fairy tale characters are portrayed by area teens aged 13 through 19, representing many area schools, including Fremont Ross, Fremont St. Joe, Lakota, Clyde-Green Springs, Gibsonburg, St. Wendolyn, and BGSU.

Performances of “Shrek the Musical” will be held Thursday through Saturday, July 17-19 at Fremont Community Theatre, 1551 Dickinson Street in Fremont. The four performances will be at 8:00 pm all three evenings, with a special Saturday matinee performance at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 for all audience members. Please call 419-332-0695 or visit fremontcommunitytheatre.org to make reservations.
