Fee Fi Fo Fum, the World of Fairy Tales is Full of Fun. A princess is locked in a tower, and none have been brave enough to rescue her. Maybe it’s because they all had the wrong motivation. Right away, fairy tale misfits are banished from Duloc and “sent to a resettlement facility,” which happens to be right in the middle of the ogre’s swamp! Shrek, a solitary ogre, goes after the princess to save his swamp from overcrowding as well as the clutches of the evil (and vertically challenged) Lord Farquaad. With a wisecracking Donkey by his side, he journeys to her rescue but finds more than he ever expected. The princess turns out to be a feisty lass who isn’t so sure about being rescued, a fearsome dragon they encounter discovers a surprising love for donkeys, and Shrek uncovers a deep, dark secret that no one had known before… through it all, our fairy tale characters are just searching for a place to fit in. Travel along to the land Far Far Away where our characters get lost in the fun and maybe even find an unlikely hero in their midst. In the unlikely event that a performance is cancelled due to inclement weather, tickets to the cancelled performance will be honored at a special performance on Nov. 5 at 7pm.
