Bridgeport Theatre Company concludes its fourth season with the award-winning musical SHREK THE MUSICAL, running Apr 25-May 11.
SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre instead of the handsome prince shows up to rescue a feisty princess. It's part twisted fairy tale, part laugh out loud comedy, and all irreverent fun for the whole family!
The cast of 30 local performers includes Ryan O'Neill as Shrek, Arielle Boutin as Fiona, Matthew James Sherrod as Donkey, John Stegmaier as Lord Farquaad, Maggie Pangrazio as Dragon, Jason Parry as Pinocchio, and Paige Howell as Gingy. The ensemble includes Brian Bish, Lucas Cafaro, Joe Cardozo, Abby Sara Dahan, Juliet Dale, Dante DiFederico, Ryan Elle, Faith Fernandes, Evelynne Fulda, Marie Fulda, Paul Goodman, Emma Cenholt-Haulund, Emma LaPlace, Anthony Meath, Adelaide Meny, Emily Pisarra, Claire Regan, Lauren Regan, Everton Ricketts, Cynthia Rivera, Juliana Rivera, Brooke Robinson, and Helen Samoskevich.
