Based on the 1990 children’s book and 2001 Oscar-winning Dreamworks Animation film of the same name, “Shrek” is a fast-paced, entertaining show, featuring a tuneful score by Jeanine Tesori (“Fun Home,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” “Caroline, or Change”) and sparkling lyrics and witty book by David Lindsay-Abaire. “Shrek” brings all the beloved characters from the film to life on stage, following the tale of an unlikely hero, a green ogre named Shrek, who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero - and his name is Shrek!


“Shrek” features a talented cast of MAR veterans and newcomers.
Accomplished actor Kevin Bielmeier makes his MAR debut in the title role. Richter alum
Emily Walsh portrays the quirky and blunt Princess Fiona and Teah Renzi, who appeared in
“Spamalot” earlier this season, is Shrek’s sassy friend Donkey.
Roger Grace plays Lord
Farquaad, the diminutive and ruthless ruler of the Kingdom of Duloc, and Fiona Bryson
portrays the imposing and flirtatious Dragon. Both actors are making their Richter debut.

   


Heading up the group of Fairy Tale creatures displaced from their homes by the evil Lord
Farquaad is Weston Pytel as Pinocchio. He is joined by Daisy Stott in the dual roles of the
Sugar Plum Fairy and Gingy; Kevin and Carolyn McCarthy as the Big Bad Wolf and
Wicked Witch, respectively; Denise Milmerstadt as Humpty Dumpty; Emma Lubbers as
Peter Pan, Sydney Gershon as Ugly Duckling and Ella Zamek as Elf. 
 



The Three Pigs are played by Rachel Koch, Brenda Schoenfeld and Steve Stott.
The Three Bears are portrayed by Robert Geils, Rose Giardiello,
and Missy Slaymaker-Hanlon.




Featured in a variety of ensemble roles are Ethan Berger, Domenic Burns, Dolly Conner
and Viola Minor; Madison Bielmeier; Abigail Rivas; Daniel Satter. Rounding out the
ensemble are Donovan Koch and Michaela Milmerstadt.

Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...
