Youth Musical Theatre Production of Shrek Jr.

Show dates: December 13 & 14

The Fall 2019 production of Shrek Jr. here at the Foundry Center for the Arts is sure to be a great time with 26 of the most talented young actors and actresses. This show is focused on our middle school / high school age students looking to have fun singing, dancing, and acting in an on-stage theatre production.

Our theatre productions at the Foundry are (of course) about creating a great show, and we expect our students (and parents) to understand the responsibility and commitment to the production needed to do our best job possible. However, even more than the quality of the show itself, we value the quality of the experience. We love to have fun, learn, and offer our best at the same time, so expect your child to be enthusiastic about participation and anxiously looking forward to every moment they can spend here – because that is the way we like it!

We also enjoy getting to know the parents and including them in as much of the fun as possible. So get ready for a great time  and sign up. We can’t wait to see you!

Tickets go on sale November 25th!
