The credit for the fantastic production lands squarely in the laps of the performers. Never before have I seen such talent in community theatre. Shrek, Donkey, Fiona and Lord Faarquad are ridiculously talented. Huge kudos to Shrek for never breaking the Scottish accent…even while singing! Princess Fiona is the consummate professional; she experienced 2 costume hiccups and neither one caused even the slightest interruption in her performance. Donkey is a hoot: the constant patter, the fantastic moves, and the outstanding voice! Simply enthralling.
We took our 3 & 5 year olds to the performance. They sat entranced for the entire production. I will admit to cringing at Donkey’s 2 swear words and 2 highly graphic (and truly unnecessary) physical gestures by Lord Faarquad. In spite those non-child-friendly moments, the show is wonderful. The audience was packed with children and all of them appeared to enjoy the performance.
Align Entertainment’s production of Shrek runs (Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays) until February 22nd at the Michael J Fox Theatre in Burnaby. Be prepared to be awed by the level of talent by both the star performers and the huge cast. Great production!
