I have seen a few great productions at North Shore Center for Performing Arts in Skokie. At a show last year, I saw an ad for Shrek: The Musical for late in the year. I immediately circled the dates on my calendar. A big green ogre in a musical? Count me in!
The day finally came and I admit I was really looking forward to it. It did not disappoint. I wrote more about it at Shrek: The Musical on Global Traveler. Also, go to NorthShoreCenter.org for more info on all of their productions.
After the show, some of the actors came out for pictures and they were still in costume. Jodie and I took a picture with Jordan DeBose (Shrek) and Dani Pike (Fiona). Readers know of my fascination with mascots (or any costumed characters). I was amped for this one.
In short, I highly recommend Shrek: The Musical and get the post-show pictures if they are offered. The actors seemed to appreciate the praise we gave them and they deserved it.
