Come join us and "let your freak flag fly" as Ormiston Junior College brings the iconic story and characters of Shrek The Musical Jr. to life on stage from 10 - 14 August at 7.30pm. A cast of 50 young performers, and almost as many supporting in backstage roles, are working hard to bring this family-friendly musical comedy to the school community and wider Ormiston & Flat Bush area.
Shrek The Musical Jr, follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others. One day, his peaceful swamp is disturbed by new tenants: fairytale misfits — including Pinocchio, the Ugly Duckling, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf — who have been banished there by the villainous Lord Farquaad. In order to gain back his land, Shrek makes a deal with Farquaad to rescue the feisty princess Fiona from a tower guarded by a fierce dragon. Setting off, alone, but soon meeting up with his faithful companion, Donkey, Shrek begins the journey of a lifetime filled with adventure, romance, and hilarity.
After the back to back successes of our 2019 & 2020 productions, "Disney’s The Lion King Jr" and "Disney's Moana Jr" come join us once again as we bring yet another iconic, well-loved favourite to the stage for all to enjoy.
IMPORTANT: Evening performances start at 7.30pm sharp. A strict late lockout applies.
