In March 2018 we celebrate a milestone in our community – 20 years of Gladstone’s Combined Schools Musical.
Gladstone Regional Council and Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre will present ‘Shrek, The Musical’ which will again unite our student community.
SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.
Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
And why not pre-purchase your Musical program for a discounted price when booking online.
