Shrek: The Musical is Hitting the Stage in April


With a new director, Mrs. Strunin, alongside the returning music director and choreographers, Mrs. Seals, Mrs. Roche, and Mrs. Fowler, the Bishop Feehan Theater Company (BFHSTC) has arrived at their final rehearsals for Shrek: The Musical.

Shrek: The Musical is a remake of DreamWorks Animation’s movie Shrek. The story remains virtually unchanged yet is enhanced with the addition of songs like “Who I’d Be,” “What’s Up, Duloc?,” and “Forever.” The musical follows Shrek after his parents abandon him and he lives alone in his swamp until a royal decree, issued by Lord Farquad, forces him to leave the swamp due to the influx of fairytale creatures on his land. On his journey he befriends Donkey and meets Lord Farquad who enlists his help to save Princess Fiona. Throughout the musical, Shrek learns the importance of love, friendship, and being true to one’s self.

The central characters remain the same with Shrek played by Jacob Rebelo ‘24, Donkey played by Mirolla Boules ‘24, Lord Farquad played by Matthew Roslonek ‘26, and Fiona played by Ariana Simoneau ‘24. Other notable side characters that Shrek meets on his journey are Gingy played by Allie Burns ‘24, Pinocchio played by Nathan Galipeau ‘27, and Dragon played by Ansley Palermo ‘27.

Bishop Feehan’s production of Shrek: The Musical premieres on Friday, April 5th at 7:00. Additional times to watch the show are Saturday, April 6th at 7:00 and Sunday, April 7th at 1:00. You can get your tickets at the link (or by clicking here):
