Why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Find out when you attend "Shrek: The Musical" this weekend

It's dress rehearsal week, which means "Shrek:The Musical" is coming to the Ada school auditorium this weekend.

Performances are at 7 p.m., Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, and at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 14, in the Ada school auditorium.

Pre-sale tickets are on sale in the high school office and during the evening and day of each performance. Tickets are $5 and are all general admission.

Leads in the music include: Coco McLaughlin as Fiona, Reece Evans as Shrek, Theodore Hadley as Donkey, and Ethan Hull as Lord Farquaad.

Scott Henning is the musical director. Jonathan Lischak directs the pit orchestra and Oshra Gadkar directing choreography. 

"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?"
