DLT will host a Swamp Party and VIP Experience Tour with "Shrek the Musical" director, Chris Cowan.  Attendees will meet in Chisholm Hall I at 6 pm for this special party and tour.  VIPs will tour the backstage of the theater, hear from cast members, and learn about our director's vision for this show and the process required to bring it to fruition. There will be games, swamp appetizers and photo opportunities for all Shrek VIPs. VIPs will choose their seats for the performance at 6:50 pm, with doors opening to the general public at 7 pm.  All VIPs will receive special commemorative "Shrek the Musical" lanyards. The VIP tour will only be offered on Saturday, February 23, 2019 and limited tickets will be sold.

Duncan Little Theatre is excited to bring "Shrek the Musical" to the Simmons Center stage. Performances will be held Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23 at 7:30 pm, Sunday, February 24 at 2:00 pm, and Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 at 7:30 pm at the Simmons Center Theater located at 800 Chisholm Trail Parkway in Duncan.  Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors (65 and up) and military personnel (active or retired).  Children 4 and under are free if sitting on an adult's lap.  Otherwise, they will need their own ticket.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, "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.

Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
