The musical comedy is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWork Animation Motion Picture film, “Shrek the Musical,” with book by William Steig. It is also a Tony Award-winning fairytale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (“Thoroughly Modern Millie”) and a book by David Lindsay-Abaire. In addition to the smash hit, “I’m a Believer,” this show also features the lovely “Big, Bright Beautiful World” and the nonconformity ballad “Freak Flag.”

Shrek brings the characters you know and love from the film to life on the stage and proves that, like onions and ogres, there are “layers” to every story.

Performance dates are Aug. 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19 and 20. All shows are at Great Falls Performing Arts Center, 30 Academy St.
