WEST POINT, Ala. – West Point High School Theatre returned to the stage Friday with its production of “Shrek the Musical,” which will run through Sunday, April 11.
The Tony-winning Broadway show tells a familiar story for those who have seen the Dreamworks Animation mega-hit motion picture, but with a few interesting new twists and a musical score. The show is directed by WPHS teacher Jimmy Harbison and librarian Kim Harbison.
Kim Harbison told The Tribune, “Our cast and crew consists of a very talented and diverse group of students, students who are involved in almost every other type of extracurricular activity at West Point. It is a blessing and a joy to work with such a wonderful group, and they are the reason we are part of this program. To see these students’ unique talents showcased while they do something they enjoy is quite an experience.
Live or livestream
Public shows continue Saturday and Sunday in the WPHS auditorium, and are scheduled for:
Saturday, April 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 11 at 2 p.m.
Each performance will also be livestreamed.
