Sammamish High School brings green ogre to life

Sammamish High School Theatre is bringing everyone’s favorite curmudgeonly ogre to life, and he’ll be singing all the way.

Shrek: The Musical is due to premiere next week, at 7:30 p.m. on April 27, 28 and 29.

According to the Sammamish school blog, it’s going to be big.

“We’re talking lots of costumes. 16 wigs. Big set pieces. Professionals in the orchestra pit. 24 microphones. We’ve got actors from not just Sammamish High School, but also Odle Middle School to help us with the magic of theatre,” the author noted.

Tickets are $10 for students, $12 for everyone else.
