Come ready to perform ONE of the following.
"Hey! Didn’t you hear what they said? Man this place is goin’ Stepford!
We gotta join forces! Otherwise they’re gonna lock me up! And I can NOT go back in a cage!"
"I can’t think about Shrek. Not now. I’m a princess after all, and look at me!
I mean really…who could every love a beast so hideous and ugly?
Princess and ugly don’t go together."
"Our swamp? Donkey, there is no our. There’s no we. There’s just me and my swamp.
And when I do get back, the first thing I’m gonna do is build a ten foot wall around my land."
"But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is Fiona and Farquaad is the sun.
My fairytale princess. I always said I’d be king, and now look!
The last adorable piece to my master plan!"

Please note that Shrek, the Musical is a bit irreverent, but it is still a G rating.
It contains potty humor (including burping and farting),
wise cracks, and the word "ass" in reference to donkey.
The musical takes after the movie in much of it's humor and dialogue.
