Members of the Summit Theatre Group are going green for one of their biggest productions ever.

“Shrek the Musical!” brings all the characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film to life. Lee’s Summit West High School theater teacher Brad Rackers directs the show.

“Shrek” is the story of an ogre in a land filled with fairy-tale characters who sets out in the company of a wise-cracking donkey to rescue a princess who doesn’t really want to be rescued.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Aug. 10-11 and 2:30 p.m. Aug. 12 at Lee’s Summit West High School, 2600 S.W. Ward Road. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors/students. A $44 family pack of four tickets is also available. Tickets can be purchased at www.summittheatre.org or at both Lee’s Summit Hy-Vee Stores.
