Yale Secondary presents Shrek the Musical starting this weekend at the Abbotsford Arts Centre (2329 Crescent Way).

The production takes place Sunday, Feb. 9 at 2:30 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 14 and Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The production is based on the Oscar-wining 2001 DreamWorks film Shrek.

It tells the story of an ogre named Shrek who, in a faraway kingdom turned upside down, shows up to rescue a feisty princess.

Adding to the adventure are a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and more than a dozen fairy tail misfits.

Tickets are $15 and are available at the door 30 minutes before the performance or in advance at the school. Call 604-853-0778 for more information.
