The 2010 annual San Francisco Night at the Theatre brought Shrek – the Musical to town. After successful events featuring this show in Seattle and New York, we were excited to debut the big green guy in our hometown on December 5. Additionally, we were honored to have the NFL Alumni Association join us as partners for the event. With Presenting Sponsor, Fenwick & West LLP, we enjoyed another wonderful end-of-year event.
The musical itself is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre is brought to dazzling new life on the 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 bad guy 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.
Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek – the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
