Pine Belt residents will soon have the opportunity to see their favorite Shrek characters live at the Saenger Theater in Hattiesburg.
Shrek the Musical Jr. is being presented by the StageStruck Performance Studio on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
"Most people are familiar with the Shrek movies," said Brenda Shows, artistic director. "This stage production takes that wonderfully funny but poignant story and adds music and dance."
According to studio officials, the production will feature 113 elementary and middle school-aged performers from Hattiesburg, Petal, Oak Grove, Purvis and Sumrall.
"I'm so proud how our students are bringing these characters to life," Shows said. "The audience is in for a real treat!"
Shows said the show is around 90 minutes, and features a family friendly atmosphere for people of all ages.
Reserved tickets cost $15 and can be purchased through the Saenger Box Office by calling 601-584-4888.
