Shrek, The Musical debuts at Beef & Boards

Everyone’s favorite ogre takes the stage at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre for the first time May 18 in Shrek, The Musical. The hilarious, Tony Award-winning stage production based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film runs through July 2.

Shrek, The Musical brings all the characters from the film to the stage where the unlikely hero finds himself on a life-changing journey with a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen more fairy tale misfits, and it all adds up to Beef & Boards’ irreverently fun 2017 Family Show.


Plus, as the 2017 Family Show, Shrek, The Musical features $10 discounts for kids ages 3-15.

Peter Scharbarough (Ruben, Joseph…; principal in A Beef & Boards Christmas 2013-16; Monsieur D’Arque, Beauty and the Beast) stars as the title character, with newcomers Emily Grace Tucker as Fiona, the feisty princess, and Julius Thomas III as Donkey. John Vessels (Cogsworth, Beauty and the Beast; Rev. Oglethorpe, Smoke on the Mountain series; Mal Beineke, The Addams Family) and Kelly Teal Goyette (Madame de la Grande Bouche, Beauty and the Beast; Mrs. Brill, Mary Poppins) return to the Beef & Boards stage in the roles of Lord Farquaad and the Dragon, respectively.
