Set in a mythical "once upon a time" sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, the Mad hatter, The Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they've been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I'll get your homes back if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He'll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing - something strange and different - about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets? Come see the show and find out!
Our version of Shrek is a treasure trove of creative costumes, sets, and a life-size dragon, complete with a live orchestra and cast of 38 talented performers. Shrek the Musical is adventuresome fun for the whole family.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!
... but not this year
We at One Eleven Theatre miss you all and can't wait to get back together. Unfortunately, we won't be back until 2021. Due to COVID-19 closures, the Grants Pass High School Performing Arts Center isn't available to us until after the first of the year.
This means we are canceling our Summer Theatre Camp this year. We will miss all of our campers and volunteers! But we are planning on "Moana Jr" as our camp theme for Summer 2021. We do not have dates yet.
We will still be doing "Shrek the Musical" as our next production, with our current cast members continuing in their roles, as they are able. We do not have official dates yet for "Shrek," but we presume it will be in the Spring, as our shows usually are.
Please keep in touch (via Facebook, Instagram, and our newsletter) for more info regarding our 2021 productions as we get closer.
If you want to support One Eleven Theatre Company, you can buy a box of 60 chocolate bars for $50 (discounted from $60). We sell these as a fundraiser for our show, and we stand to lose money on them if we cannot sell the boxes we have. If you're interested in purchasing a box for $50, go to Grants Pass Podiatry (1227 NE 7th St A, Grants Pass) to pick one up. Thank you!
Another way to support our theatre (or any local theatre) is to "donate" the cost of your ticket, by not requesting a refund. But we understand not everyone can afford to do that! Refund Information: Tickets bought through our online ticketing service have already been refunded automatically, but if you purchased tickets at one of our local outlets and would like to request a refund, please email (note the spelling of "theatre") with "Refund" in the subject line.
As always, thank you for your support of One Eleven Theatre Company, and know that we miss you and we'll still be here when the waiting is over and our "Big Bright Beautiful World" is healed and healthy. ♥
