Crane School Presents ‘Shrek The Musical’

Crane Country Day School’s Upper School students will present Dreamworks' Shrek The Musical, May 17-19. Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday.

A cast and crew of more than 45 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students have been busy preparing for the production's opening.

Shrek The Musical opens in a far-away swamp with an ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by the invasion of a rag-tag group of misfit fairytale characters.

Banished from their kingdom by the pint-sized ruler Lord Farquaad, the characters plead with the ugly, green ogre to help them.

Determined to save his home, Shrek journeys forth on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona. Along the way, our unlikely hero befriends a talkative donkey, confronts a fierce, fiery dragon, and learns the fair princess has secrets of her own.

The family friendly and thoroughly enjoyable production is designed for audiences of all ages.

Shrek the Musical is directed by Crane's drama teacher Shana Lynch Arthurs, also of Stage Left Productions.

Crane’s Performing Arts Department puts on four productions each school year. Developing character and confidence through public speaking and performance opportunities have been values at Crane School since it was founded in 1928.

Call 969-7732 to buy tickets for any of the three shows; tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $12 for general admission.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
