“Shrek has accepted his role in the story, but soon discovers a piece of him never stopped dreaming of more,” said Craig-Olsen. “Likewise, Princess Fiona dreams of a ‘perfect’ love story, but to her surprise, discovers love in her imperfect story.”
The musical features dozens of singers, dancers and actors from the Naperville community, as well as a number of North Central students.
“Our productions always include community members from all ages and stages in life. Some of our actors will make their theatrical debut this summer, and some have been part of our casts for years,” said Craig-Olsen.
