Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek Jr. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

The play is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and popular Broadway musical.

The role of Shrek will be performed by 6th Grade student Hadi Mhanna. Princess Fionna will be played by Amal Taher, 7th grade; Nour Nassar, 7th grade; and Zeina Nassar, 4th grade. The role of Donkey is played by 7th grade students Alfadel Alkatumi and Mohamad Hamid. Lord Farquad is played by Muhamed Binlam, 6th grade. The Story Tellers are 6th grade students Noor Mezahi and Rumaysa Saleh and 7th grade student Aya Channir.

Adults involved with the performance are Ashley Solomon, Director; Jennifer Pegouske, Music; Bridget Leary, Choreography; and Nathan Dobert, Lights/Sound.
