BROADWAY UPSTATE PRESENTS SHREK THE MUSICAL

Thursday August 16th at 7PM
Friday August 17th at 7PM
Saturday August 18th at 2PM & 7PM
Sunday August 19th at 2PM


Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, 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. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

THE FALLING AND THE RISING

Friday September 28th at 7:30PM


PRESENTED BY THE CHARLES R. WOOD THEATER: This new American opera chronicles the imagined journey of a soldier suspended inside a coma after a roadside attack. We follow our soldier as she makes her way through a coma-induced dreamscape punctuated by powerful encounters with other fellow service members, each on the brink of discovery.

Together, they must find clarity, consciousness, and communal hope inside a strange and ever-shifting universe. Created from compiled interviews from returning soldiers at Walter Reed National Medical Center, Arlington Cemetery, and Fort Meade, The Falling and the Rising is an inspirational story of service, sacrifice, and connection inside uncertainty. This operatic soldier’s odyssey was created to honor indomitable spirit of our military veterans and to shed light on the power of their often overlooked stories. The Falling and the Rising was premiered in April 2018 at Texas Christian University, featuring a cast made up of members of the U.S. Army Field Band Soldier’s Chorus.
