'Shrek" rehearses for April opening

Tracy Agnew, The Suffolk News-Herald
Months of rehearsals for a community musical will culminate this spring in the lovable tale of a green ogre and how he finds true love. The “Shrek” stories most people are familiar with through film will find new life on the stage of the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts in April. Renee Perry Mitchell, whose studio RPM Dance is partnering with the center on the production, said she was drawn to the show because of its message, its large cast and its accessibility. 

Suffolk resident Timothy Wright, a student at Tidewater Community College, will play Shrek. Nansemond-Suffolk Academy sophomore Ryan Horton will play Fiona, and Old Dominion University junior Justin Jones will play Donkey.
