Steve Russell took a much needed break this past week, leaving Donkey (Jamie Hunt), Fiona (Marlena Sculthorpe) and Lord Farquaad (Joel Varty) to amuse themselves. That may have been a mistake – anyone who knows these 3 knows they should never be left unattended. What started out as an exploration of the stock of some 250 costumes ended up with the theft of 3 priceless Shrek the Musical headgear artifacts.
The producer eventually caught up with them in the props department, playing with the blow-up deer. If you were under the impression that Shrek the Musical is just for kids, check out photos below.
This is what happens when a little man tries to climb on a deer prop.
“And in the morning… I’m makin’ waffles!”
Shrek will be ticked that he missed this!
Doesn’t this thing go any faster?
“Fiona? Farquaad here. Hello? Hello? Can you hear me now?”
Oh, deer…. Steve Russell, relaxing in the sun, caught with his pants down, again. Come back, Steve, we miss you, deerly!
First things first: tickets for Shrek are quickly disappearing. If you want to see your favourite ogre and all his friends live on stage… you’d better get busy and call our box office RIGHT NOW. Seriously. Don’t be disappointed, don’t wait, do it now – 905-372-2210. We’ll still be here when you get back.
Okay – let’s assume that you’ve reserved your seats and you’re all ready… IT IS STILL WINTER. The show isn’t on until April, but it’s barely March and this cold spell is EPIC.
You a need toque. A Shrek Toque.
Good news! We have a limited number of these things for sale, and if you contact us, you (or your favourite little ogre) can have one, too.
Here are some photos of the cast of Shrek sporting this fab headwear!
