SHREK The Musical

Harry and the extremely talented high school theatre troupe put on a spectacular production of SHREK the Musical last week!   Mer and Grandpa made the trip from Alabama to watch the show and they were not disappointed.  We saw the show on two separate nights and enjoyed it so much!  Those kids put a ton of work into the show as did the Theatre teachers.  Hours and hours of rehearsal and dance practice.  Singing, dancing, acting, comedy.....the show had it all.  Their hard work paid off when the curtain went up and the show went on. Fantastic!  

Here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure!  Here is Harry previewing his Head Guard costume at home while vacuuming.  Not sure how that came together, but anyway....

We arrived super early on the second night so we could score these great seats with no one in front of us and a bonus was that Harry danced right in front of us during one part of the show!

After the show we head out to the lobby to congratulate the cast and crew for an awesome show! They had great crowds over the four days of performance and I think they had about 3,000 people buy tickets!

We ran into Tyler's girl Missy first and we knew that it would be a good plan to just hang with her and The Head Guard would find us!   Missy was a tap dancing rat in the show!  She was great.  She pulled a muscle the first night when she went down into the splits - but she hobbled around on crutches during the day and managed to still perform all four nights.  A real trooper!

See, it worked!  The Head Guard found us!  He was so great in the show!  He just shines on stage!  So proud of that kid!

Harry and Missy!  Cute kids!

The Thespian Troupe Officers.  What a talented, lovely, charming group of humans!

More of the cast joined in the picture taking fun!  There were over seventy kids in this production and they were all awesome!   Especially awesome vocal performances by Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Lord Farquaad.  So, so good!  Mega talented!  I was blown away.  I also heard from lots of my friends that they thoroughly enjoyed the show (and of course thought Harry was great!)  I hope that every kid who performed or worked on the show left that stage full of pride in a job well done.
