This Friday and Saturday, come enjoy a modern fairytale on stage at MHS's Walton Performing Arts Center: "Shrek The Musical"!

The Marion High School Drama Club and Music Department will present the popular show at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 23 and 24, 2015. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students. You can purchase your tickets in advance at the MHS main office, open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or at the Walton Center Box Office on show nights.

This storybook adventure is of course based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture that became a pop culture phenomenon and made its main character, the ogre Shrek, a cultural icon.

During a quest to protect his own status-quo, Shrek finds what he didn't know he needed with the help of some colorful friends. This is a fun show you don't want to miss!

The MHS production of "Shrek The Musical" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 W. 54th St., New York, NY 10019, phone: 212-541-4684, fax: 212-397-4684, web: www.MTIShows.com.

If you are a Marion High School student interested in joining the Drama Club, please see club sponsor Mrs. Marsha Vermilion (or click here to email her).
