Shrek the Musical Came to Delray’s Crest Theatre for 2 Nights Only!

Spring musicals weren’t really “a thing” when I was in high school. Boca High didn’t have the auditorium facilities it does now, so it was pretty much cheerleading and football and basketball games for me! Now working with (and at) Grandview Preparatory School, it has given me a second chance to be a part of a springtime musical…as a parent spectator of course. 😉 This year, Grandview is putting on Shrek the Musical in Delray Beach at the Crest Theatre May 5-6 (2017)…and it’s a must-see!

Shrek the Musical in Delray Beach

#dailybocaavery is beside herself with excitement waiting to see Shrek the Musical in Delray Beach. She’s watched the show on Netflix, but can’t wait to take in the show in person. Me either!

Shrek the Musical in Delray Beach at the Crest Theatre

SUMMARY: Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR. It 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 fairy tale 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.

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairy tale misfits. They have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task. If he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad. But, a fairy tale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Shrek the Musical in Delray Beach

DATES/TIMES: Showtime is at 7:00 p.m. on May 5th and 6th at the Crest Theatre in Delray Beach.
COST:  Tickets are $20 each. Children under 3 sitting in a lap do not need a ticket. Tickets can be purchased at Grandview’s front office (336 Spanish River Blvd. NW in Boca Raton) or by calling 561-416-9737.
