Shrek The Musical at the PPAC: 4 Pack Ticket Giveaway- Funniest New touring Musical from Broadway!

My family and I are big theater buffs and recently we began to take Hayley to see the incredible shows at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC). PPAC is the second largest theater in New England and is located in the center of the arts/theater district in Providence. The theater is one of the most gorgeous theaters I have ever been to and now I have the pleasure of giving one of my readers  4 tickets to the next show at PPAC:  Shrek The Musical! 

Shrek The Musical is an incredible, vibrant show for kids of all ages. If they love any of the Shrek movies, you do not want to miss seeing it brought to live theater. This show originally opened to rave reviews on Broadway, December 2009.  Shrek The Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling orge who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed of his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess, and learns that real friendship and true love aren’t only found in fairytales. 

SHREK THE MUSICAL features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Good People), music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie,  Caroline, or Change).  SHREK THE MUSICAL is directed by Stephen Sposito who recently served as Associated Director of the current Broadway revival How To Succeed In Business starring Daniel Radcliff.  Sets and costumes are based on the Tony Award® winner designs by Tim Hatley (Private Lives, Spamalot)  and Chris Bailey will recreate the original choreography by Josh Prince (The Bridge Project, The Jerry Springer Opera).   Shrek The Musical combines romance and fairytale in the hit that made the Shrek movies so successful. Old or young- you will love Shrek The Musical.

SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on 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 villain 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.  Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, WWOR-TV proclaimedSHREK THE MUSICAL as “FAR, FAR AND AWAY THE FUNNIEST NEW MUSICAL ON BROADWAY!” –from the PPAC website
