Plaza Theatre Company – PRESS RELEASE

SHREK THE MUSICAL is coming to Plaza Theatre Company next

May 5th, 2015

Plaza Theatre Company is proud to announce the opening of SHREK THE MUSICAL on May 22nd, 2015. The production will play Plaza’s newly renovated theatre at 111 S. Main Street in Cleburne, TX opening on May 22nd and playing thru June 27th. The show will be the 86th produced by Plaza Theatre Company since it’s inception in November of 2006.

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?

Additionally, the evening performances on Friday May 22nd and Saturday May 23rd will see the Plaza Guild hosting an OPENING WEEKEND SOCIAL immediately following the show. Those who attend will be invited to enjoy post show coffee and dessert while enjoying a social event with cast and crew to celebrate the opening of the show.
