Moonlight State Productions is presenting Shrek: The Musical from Aug. 12 through 23 and 26 through 29 at Moonlight Amphitheatre. Beloved characters from the popular movie will be brought to life on stage, from the titular unlikely hero to his wisecracking donkey and feisty princess. Performances begin at 8 p.m., and the gates open at 6:30 p.m. for families to arrive early for picnics on the lawn. To celebrate the production, the Moonlight Angels Auxiliary is hosting a Swamp Soiree with Princess Fiona on Friday, Aug. 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event, hosted by Princess Fiona herself, will give guests a behind-the-scenes stage tour, photos and autographs with Shrek: The Musical performers, a special buffet lunch, a gift, and other surprises. Space is limited; reserve your seat by contacting Carolyn Chiriboga at 760-727-3616. Proceeds will benefit the Moonlight Cultural Foundation, with tickets at $60 for one adult and one child and $20 per additional child.
