Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek the Musical JR. which is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.
It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family – and the TheatreCentre production puts it on unique stamp on the adventure this Thursday – Saturday at the First United Methodist Church Edge Building in Centre.
Three of those “responsible” stopped by the WEIS Radio studio Tuesday morning to discuss the presentation, including director Kelly Turner – Daniel Garrett, who stars as Shrek – and MaKenzie Green, who is the choreographer and plays the role of Peter Pan as well.

Also in the studio was MaKenzie Green, who has a dual role in the production:
Performances are at 7:00 each evening, again that’s Thursday – Saturday, at the First United Methodist Church Edge Building on Main Street in Centre.
