A plump, grumpy green ogre is headed to the Washington University Medical Campus March 21, 22 and 23 for performances of “Shrek the Musical.” The 8 p.m. shows will be held in St. Louis College of Pharmacy’s Auditorium, 4530 Parkview Place.
The 14th annual musical is produced, directed and performed by Medical Campus students. The cast, crew, orchestra and stagehands consist of about 80 students from the School of Medicine, the Medical Scientist Training Program, the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences, the Division of Biostatistics and the programs in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Audiology and Communication Sciences.
Tickets cost $15 for students and $18 for general admission. They can be purchased on the musical’s website. Tickets are $20 at the door.
“The med school’s full-scale, Broadway-style musical is such a fun and vibrant part of the Washington University Medical Campus,” said Caroline Wentworth, director of the musical and a fifth-year MD/MPH student. “It’s a unique opportunity for students to exercise our creativity and forge friendships across academic programs. We are extremely proud of this year’s show and can’t wait for opening night.”
Several faculty members will make cameo appearances during the performance.
