Beauty is in the eye of the beholder in Shrek the Musical JR, at Workshop Theatre. Come enjoy this family-friendly twisted fairy tale from June 21-24, with multiple shows each day at Hammond School's theatre.

Everyone's favorite ogre sets off on a quest to save Princess Fiona 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.

Shrek the Musical JR is based on the beloved Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, and features a cast of fairy tale favorites, including Donkey, Pinocchio, the Ugly Duckling, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, and the villainous Lord Farquaad.

Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek the Musical JR is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

Shrek the Musical JR's production team includes Director Hans Boeschen, Music Director Jordan Harper, Choreographer Katie Hilliger and Costume Designer Alexis Doktor.

Shrek the Musical JR has multiple performances most days so your family can be sure to join in the fun. Show times are Thursday, June 21 at 7 pm; Friday, June 22 at 3 pm and 7 pm; Saturday, June 23 at 10:30 am, 3 pm, and 7 pm; and Sunday June 24 at 3 pm and 7 pm. All performances will be at Hammond School's theatre, located at 854 Galway Lane, Columbia, SC 29209 (behind the VA Medical Center).
