Shrek The Musical

2014 Summer Musical
Directed by Debra Goldman
Music Direction by Daniel Ermel
Choreography by Annie Jo Ermel

Big Deal Productions could not be more thrilled to bring the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on stage for the first ever performance at the Community Arts Center for the 2014 Summer Musical!

Based on the hugely popular film, Shrek the Musical follows the adventures of Shrek, an unlikely but lovable hero, on a quest to rescue a strong and sassy Princess. Throw in a fast-talking donkey, a very nasty bad guy, with an even shorter temper, a feisty gingerbread cookie and dozens of other fairy tale oddballs, and you’ve got a show that the whole family will love!

Performances will be held on July 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7:30 pm and July 20 and 27 at 2 pm at the Community Arts Center in Buffalo Grove.  Tickets for adults and children ages 12 and up are $16 in advance or $19 at the door.  Tickets for children ages 11 and under are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.  For more information, please contact Lindsay at or 847.850.2132.
