This years eighth graders are leading a cast of fairytale creatures, kings, queens and of course ogres through the swamp and can’t wait to perform.
The cast and crew have been working hard since October to prepare and to share the story of everyones favorite Ogre. Shrek and Donkey (played by eighth grader Miles Biskovich and eighth grader Julia Dowd) lead a cast of fairytale misﬁts on an adventure to rescue a princess and ﬁnd true acceptance.
