With the creation of Shrek, Dreamworks boldly turned the peculiar tradition of Fairy Tales on its illogical head. It begins when a young ogre’s lonely swamp is infested with banished Fairy Tale misfits. Soon enough the ogre, Shrek, originally seeking only his own interests, finds himself on a hero’s journey (with a wisecracking donkey) and saves a princess from the corrupt Lord Farquaad. With a sophisticated score written by some of the best Broadway veterans, this quest takes us on a wild journey in which isolated characters suffering from self-loathing grow into leaders who let their freak flags fly and are accepted for who they are!
The playful spirit of this swampy, dreamy story comes to life in this energy filled and intimate theater program limited to just 30 kids. During the 3-week camp, youth will take on characters, learn songs and dancing, and prepare for the full-scale production to be held at the Barnard Town Hall with original staging, costuming, choreography and a live band! Our team of theater professionals will teach, guide and inspire your kids. Daily schedule includes mid-morning snack and a long break for lunch, supervised outdoors at Barnard Academy.
