Event Notes


The HAT Academy presents SHREK THE MUSICAL JR

Directed by Rachael Murphy Music Directed by Ashley Buckingham Choreography by Kiersten Penny

Featuring some of the most talented young performers on the island, Shrek the Musical JR is a family friendly adaptation of the Broadway musical about everyone's onion-like ogre!

With all-original songs, this catchy pop-culture ladden gem will keep you in stitches with all your favourite characters and scenes from the movie, but with some new twists.

It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale 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.

The perfect family treat to celebrate the spring, in the tradition of Frozen JR and Seussical the Musical.

6 performances only: May 19 to 22, 2022

Youth Tickets: $17 plus HST Adult Tickets: $27 plus HST
