Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) is transforming the Herberger Theater’s Center Stage into a swamp fit for an ogre. Everyone’s favorite fairytale characters will come to life when VYT raises the curtain on its first production of its 2017-2018 Season, Shrek The Musical.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, Jeanine Tesori’s Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairytale adventure that brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

Meet Shrek, an unlikely hero finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess. With 39 talented young actors from around the Valley playing a variety of fun characters, a colorful, eye-popping set designed by the late Paul Bridgeman, and foot-tapping songs brought to life by a live orchestra, this magical production proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Shrek The Musical is presented by Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) at the Herberger Theatre Center 222 East Monroe Street Phoenix, AZ 85004 in Downtown Phoenix. The show runs August 11 - 27, 2017.
