2020 Camp Shrek











Three-Week Virtual Musical Production Camp!

Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig

Directed by Kayleigh Jardine and Jenn Monk-Reising

Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, 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.

This camp will offer a unique theatrical opportunity to bring this fun and fabulous production to life virtually.  Every day of camp presents a new opportunity to build skills in acting, music and voice, movement, stagecraft, song interpretation, and improvisation.  Costumes and props by YPT’s Tech Camp to delight Shrek campers.  The camp culminates in a live-stream theater performance of this Broadway production.

Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
