With lyrics and book written by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori, this Endicott College Mainstage production is produced with special permission of Music Theatre International and directed by Professors Katie Clarke and Becca Kenneally.
“This year we wanted to celebrate our students by showcasing their talents and really prove that ‘what makes us special makes us strong’” says Clarke, quoting a line from the show’s self-love anthem “Freak Flag.” Clarke adds, “Shrek beautifully illustrates what it feels like to be an outcast, to be displaced, and to search for your space in the world. While our fairytale creatures fight their way through misconceptions, they find that what really scares people is what they don’t understand.”
