Shrek-Mean, Green Theatre Scene
Shrek is only roaring through Rosemont Theatre till tomorrow, so get your tickets and go see this fun adaptation. Here's our prior post.
We checked out the show last night and the whole family enjoyed it. I was impressed with the nonconformist, grrrl power contrast to most fairy tales. The kids loved the colorful costumes, the amazing dragon, rat, and prince puppetry, and the jokes. Even if the dad in your family is a grouchy ogre about musical theatre, we bet he'll be able to relate to Shrek--an older, round bellied curmudgeon of a loner, but an all around good guy under the rough demeanor.
ChiIL Mama recommends Shrek The Musical for family friendly fun for all ages.
