WHAT: Rivertown Theaters' season opener, SHREK THE MUSICAL, under the direction of co- artistic director, Gary Rucker, has added yet another performance of the big, splashy musical on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 2:00 pm due to demand for tickets.

Based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, we bring the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling life on the stage.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, 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.
