Shrek Coming to Waukee High School – Spring Musical Information


Waukee Theatre Arts is proud to present SHREK THE MUSICAL. Rehearsals are currently underway for our spring musical production at Waukee High School. Check out some of the footage from our early rehearsals here. We hope you can join us for an unforgettable evening of magic, adventure, and romance with all of your favorite characters!

“Once upon a time…” in the land of fairy tales, Shrek the ogre lives all alone on his swamp. When his home is invaded by a gaggle of disgruntled fairytale creatures (kicked off of their land by the evil Lord Farquaad), Shrek sets out on a quest to get his swamp back. Along the way, Shrek must team up with a talkative Donkey to rescue the fiery Princess Fiona from the clutches of a lonely Dragon. This unlikely hero finds himself in the middle of an epic adventure that rewrites the traditional storybook ending. Exploring themes of identity, isolation, and friendship, there was never a better time to revisit this modern classic. Join us to see how this Tony Award Winning story unfolds, with laughter and fun for the whole family!
