FREAK flags are flying as the Carillon Junior Theatrical Society rehearses for its production of Shrek The Musical Jr in November.

Tickets have gone on sale for the show, which follows Shrek, the soft-hearted ogre, and his faithful friend Donkey as they attempt to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona in order to save their home.

Along the way, they fight for freedom, discover new friends, a sense of self-worth ... and, of course, true love.

The show will feature 70 of Carillon Junior Theatrical Society’s students, aged six to 17, all with varying levels of experience, but one thing in common: a love of drama and performance.

“This is a celebration of what friends can achieve together,” Carillon Junior Theatrical Society’s Bronni Colley said.

“Featuring the velvety vocals of Cameron Russell as Shrek, hilarious Daniel Van Klooster as Donkey, powerhouse Polly Taylor as Princess Fiona and suavely arrogant Henry Summerton as Lord Farquaad, Shrek Jr boasts a cast of wonderfully entertaining characters, bold colours, amusing dance routines, very catchy music and jokes for adults and kids alike.

“This is certainly a show for the whole family.”

There will be three public shows only - 11am and 3pm on Saturday, November 17 and 1pm on Sunday, November 18 – so Ms Colley says tickets will sell quickly.

Family and group rates are also available.
