Shrek Student Previews

KWMP is a community theatre organization that has been providing opportunities for members of our community to shine, both on and off stage since 1948. Our student matinees offer educators the ability to engage their students through the magic of theater and expand their learning in and outside of the classroom.

Shrek the Musical


Shrek the Musical is a one-of-a-kind, hilarious fairy tale in which curses are reversed, monsters get the girls, donkeys and dragons find love, and princesses are beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Grumpy, gruff, green ogre Shrek lives alone in his swamp. The world is fearful and mocking of him, and he is more than happy to leave the world to itself, in turn. Suddenly, his hermit existence is thrown open, when a group of homeless fairy tale characters — Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Little Pigs, and more — burst upon his swamp, seeking refuge from the persecution of the cruel, vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad.
