Spending time and having fun with family is what the holidays are all about. What’s more fun than seeing a Broadway show? Maybe it’s seeing a Broadway show in your hometown! None of the inconveniences of travel or busy New York City streets but all of the fun, music, laughter and magic of the Great White Way. That’s what Broadway Theatre League brings to Huntsville every year and the holidays is a great time to share in the magic.
This year, BTL kicks off the holiday season on November 18-20 with the family-friendly show Shrek the Musical. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, this show brings everyone’s favorite ogre to life on 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 villain 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. Ticket prices for this show start at $37 for adults and $27 for children 17 and under.
To check out the entire season of award-winning plays and musicals the Broadway Theatre League is bringing to Huntsville or just to learn more about Shrek the Musical, visit their website at www.broadwaytheatreleague.org.
