Universal Studios Announces Shrek Musical

(May 24, 2001 - by On May 15, Digital Media FX announced that Universal Studios was beginning work on a Shrek Musical titled "Shrek Live!" Universal Studios has now confirmed this via the following press release:

Universal Studios Hollywood brings the fairy-tale magic of "Shrek" to life in "Shrek Live!," an all-new live, interactive musical and comedy adventure, based on Dreamworks' computer animated smash.

"Shrek Live!" performances can be enjoyed on weekends through June 16. From June 17 through Labor Day weekend, "Shrek Live!" performances can be seen daily.

Designed to appeal to the entire family, "Shrek Live!" recounts the storybook saga of Shrek, an ornery ogre whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy-tale characters, banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad, and his mission to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing dragon.

Set on a renaissance faire-themed stage, the 20-minute live performance of musical mayhem and comedic folly invites guests to flex their vocal chords and participate as one of many popular fairy tale characters, including the "Three Little Pigs" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."

Featuring toe-tapping music and elaborately costumed "Shrek" characters, "Shrek Live!" will captivate both young and old alike in its engaging quest for the quintessential "happily ever after" storybook ending.
