SHREK Jr – August 2016

Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present as part of our 2016 Junior Program SHREK JR running from the 5th to 21st August at the Williamstown Mechanics Institute Theatre.

 

It’s a “big bright beautiful world” for everyone’s favourite ogre in SHREK JR based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film. In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who’ve been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn’t be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, SHREK JR is an irreverently fun show for the whole family.

 

About our Junior Program

Established in 2011, Williamstown Musical Theatre Company Inc’s junior program is open to young performers aged between 8 – 18 years old and aims to provide them with high quality creative learning experiences in the theatre arts. A positive, supportive and fun environment is encouraged to promote and develop self-respect, confidence, awareness, imagination, creativity, determination and social skills in young people. Cast members also develop discipline, memorization techniques, motor skills, coordination, and many other crucial foundation skills through creative dramatics and, in doing so, enhance their self-esteem, grace, and poise, both onstage and off.

 

Developed with the intention of sharing our passion for musical theatre with children and teens so that they, in turn, can continue this creative tradition as teachers, performers and arts patrons for generations to come, we hope you can encourage all our young performers by your support.
