Disclosure: I attended a media performance & giveaway provided by the Rose Theater. All opinions are mine.

My kids love Shrek and have watched the entire series of movies. They giggle at his farts and love the unlikely friendship between Shrek and Donkey. Now, The Rose Theater in Omaha has brought Shrek to life in a fun and hilarious musical.

shrekAbout the Show:
Fairy creatures from the land have been banished to Shrek’s swamp and Shrek wants them gone. He enjoys his quiet and lonely swamps. To receive ownership of his swamp, he agrees to dare his life to rescue princess Fiona for Prince Farquaad, a tiny (but ambitious) tyrant. During his journey, he runs into Donkey and they form an unusual and hilarious duo. Will Donkey and Shrek be able to rescue Princess Fiona?

With over 20 songs performed during this musical and lively action, Shrek the Musical is sure to delight. Parents, be warned, there is a two minute belching & farting scene that will have your kids rolling in laughter.

In the end, can Shrek overcome the stereotype that he’s unlikable and find genuine friendship? And, can ogres find true love?
