About Shrek The Musical TYA
During the weekends July 8-17 Wayne Township Community Theatre, a program of the Wayne Township Education Foundation, will present Shrek the Musical TYA, originally produced on Broadway by Dreamworks Theatrical and Neal Street Productions. This fairy tale adventure is perfect for the smallest theater-goers and their entire families. Join Shrek, the irresistible donkey, and a love besotted dragon as they fumble through saving their swamp, rescuing Princess Fiona, and foiling the pint-sized, felonious Farquaad. In the end, the world of make-believe returns, of course, to being “A Big, Bright, Beautiful World.” This Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) version was created by The Coterie with a shortened running time perfect for families.
Directed by Craig Underwood and music-directed by Will Scharfenburger, the cast of nearly 50, includes both children and adults from Wayne Township and the Greater Indianapolis area. Shrek will be played by Ben Davis Alum and local fame Josiah McCruiston.
The show runs weekends from July 8-17. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm and Sunday Matinees are at 2:00pm. All shows are held in the Ben Davis Theatre, 1200 N. Girls School Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46214, DOOR 2.
Admission for Wayne Township Students is FREE. All other tickets are $12 for Adults, $10 for Seniors 60+, Non-wayne Students $8.
Sponsorship by IU Health, Epic Insurance, Schmidt Associates, Cannon IV, JMS, IUPUI School of Health & Human Sciences and Tenacity Dance Company has helped to make this show free to Wayne Township students.
