Broadway Grand Rapids Presents Shrek the Musical

SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on the stage.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, USA Today proclaims SHREK THE MUSICAL, "ALTOGETHER IRRESISTIBLE. A BIG FAT HIT!"

SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

Opera Grand Rapids: The Barber of Seville

In what is probably the most beloved comedy in all of opera, pure silliness and hilarious situations abound, clothed in the brilliance of bel canto opera at its best! With the assistance of Seville’s famous barber, Figaro, the lovely Rosina tries to avoid the marriage intentions of her withered old guardian, Dr. Bartolo. She much prefers her handsome young suitor instead, who just happens to be Count Almaviva in disguise! With a zany plot full of mayhem, mistaken identities and madcap fun, matters of the heart come to a beautifully comic conclusion that will leave you laughing long after the final curtain comes down.

The show is 4/29/11 and 4/30/11. Tickets will available on 2/21/11 at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place box offices, Ticketmaster ticket centers, charge by phone at 1.800.982.2787 and ticketmaster.com.
