Shrek The Musical
“That’ll do donkey, that’ll do” calls out Shrek from: Shrek The Musical. The distinctive play brings out the best of everyone; I’d say director Jim had a great group of students. The message in the play is a valuable one, one that everyone needs some work on. The actors, and orchestra brought the play together. This high school performance probably beat some broadway plays. Overall, this play was a three and a half star show, out of five stars. The sound, lights, props, and costumes were great. The actors, audience, and performance knew what they were doing. Shrek: The Musical brought hysterical actors to the stage, and it worked.
This enthusiastic and dramatic costumes, props, sounds, and lights brought the musical together, like the binding of a book. The set up of the play was marvelous, beautify in every direction you look. The artis skills were great for the production being put on by a high school with very little money within the bank account . Lord farquaad’s outfit was a success for making him look short. Ferlenn (Lord Farquaad) was unique, with the perfect voice to fit the part. The dragon, and the gingerbread man, were two great props. The dragon was played by Yaaba Paintsil who did a fantastic job. When eyes of dragen changed it brought dramatic suspense to the audience. They had a difficulty with the dragon prop with arm falling off, but they carried on with show like nothing happened. The sound was phenomenal, and so were the lights.
The actors and audience had a connection, like they were a fish on a hook being pulled in. Within the play I think my favourite actor was donkey played by Anna Dzieciol; she nailed the voice of donkey in the real shrek that was played Eddie Murphy, in the 2001 film. The film was released April, 22nd, 2001 and made a big hit. The same happened with this musical. The main characters Shrek (Chris), Donkey (Anna ), and Fiona (Bailey & Lauren ) bring the 2001 film to life.
The performance in my opinion, is a three and a half stars out of five stars. I beleive the message that goes along with the musical ( film ) is that even the ugliest person could be the most honest, friendliest person. This reminds me of one of my favourite sayings ” Don’t judge a book by its cover.”, the message was really presented within the musical. Funny, inspiring, dramatic, creative, and enjoy able. Those are five words that I think would explain the performance.
” I think I got you beat, I think I got beat.” Directs Fiona to Shrek. The the play was enjoyable, and did not put me to sleep. It kept me on my toes, event though I have probably seen the movie over 50 times. I find that a good sign. I thought the musical was fantastic for a high school with a very low budget. I loved the musical, I would recommend the play for everyone, as it was a kid, and adult show. Those were my thoughts and opinons on Shrek The Musical.
