2 p.m. Sundays

Ticket prices:$8 student (4-18), $12 adults

Based on the contemporary fairy-tale book and the animated film it inspired, Shrek the Musical uses an all-new score to expand on the movie's original story. Set in a mythical "Once upon a time" sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they've been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I'll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He'll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing, something strange and different, about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?
