Shrek the Musical debuts at the Morris Performing Arts Center in downtown South Bend this weekend.

The Broadway presentation is based on the William Steig book and the Oscar-winning film, “Shrek.” The musical offers something for everyone.

Audiences can watch the story of Shrek, the grumpy ogre, come to life on stage in a play that plays off traditional fairytale tropes.

"It's really great to see, because we all know what an ogre looks like, what a dragon looks like, what a donkey looks like, but it's weird to see those things come to life before your eyes. It's everything you loved about the movie and then some. It's a magical experience that shouldn't be missed," says Perry Sooks who plays Shrek.

The first performance was Friday at 8 p.m., but the theatre will have additional shows at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon and 8 p.m. Saturday evening.
