Some Broadway musicals are based on books, some are based on movies and still others are based on fairy tales. But "Shrek the Musical" may be the first to combine all three.
Sunrise 7's Sean Caldwell spoke with Spencer Loomis (Shrek,) Marcus Snow (Donkey) and Kate Kierzkowski (Fiona) for a preview of a new production from Wausau Community Theatre.
"Shrek" opens Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Theater in Wausau, with evening performances Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Families will also have the opportunity to meet some of the characters at a pre-show event before Saturday's performance for $10.
Tickets cost $22 for adults, $18 for seniors, college students, and military members, $14 for kids and teens from age 7 to high school and $7 for kids age 7 and younger if you order by phone at (715) 359-3972.
There's an extra charge of three dollars for tickets at the door.
