Rutland Youth Theatre brings “Shrek” to the Paramount stage

Dec. 19 & 20 — RUTLAND — The award-winning Rutland Youth Theatre presents “Shrek the Musical,” full Broadway show with live orchestra, on Friday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. and Saturday Dec. 20 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland.

Produced by Saskia Hagen Groom and guest directed by Meghan Hakey, “Shrek the Musical” is an irreverently fun show for the whole family. In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who’ve been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Only a fairy tale wouldn’t be complete without twists and turns along the way.

Tickets are $10 for children and seniors; $12 for adults, at
