Live, On Stage! PCP's Shrek, the Musical Opens Friday November 4!

Please join the Portland Civic Players on this magical journey! Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." This 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 shorttempered 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.

Led by Matt Thelen as Shrek, and Mary Green as Fiona, the part of Donkey is played by Antonius Watkins, Lord Farquuad by Arron Swan, and Dragon by Tiffany Barron. The Muffin Man/Gingy will be portrayed by Madison Sharp, Pinocchio by Iggy Arleth, King Harold/Big Bad Wolf by Dan Braker, Queen Lillian/Fairy Godmother by Emily Perry, Peter Pan by Josephine Polasek, the Three Little Pigs by Laura Johnson, Autumn Simons, and Mahlea Maresh, the Wicked Witch by Cassandra Jasma, Sugar Plum Fairy by Amber Miller, Ugly Duckling by Kelly Frazee, Ogre Family/Three Bears by Jonathan Bair, Chris Horvath and Keira Cymbal and Zoe Isbell. Also appearing are the Mad Hatter portrayed by Matt Dorn, Elf by Evie Johnston, Dwarf by Audrey Frazee, Three Blind Mice by Autumn Simons, Jazmyn Hard, and Amber Miller, White Rabbit by Sarah Jandernoa, Pied Piper by Jazmyn Hard, Captain of the Guard/Thelonius by Tyler Tichvon, Knights/Guards by Leon Miller, Pam Robinson, Madi Crowley, Josie Isbell, and Erin Hoard, Young Fiona by Rosie Johnston, Teen Fiona by Josie Isbell, and the Rats/Duloc Dancers by Heather's Dance Studio of St. Johns.

We couldn’t be happier with the hard work and enthusiasm of everyone involved! Tickets are going fast, you don't want to miss this show!”
