Shrek: The Musical

Make room for ogre-sized family fun as the greatest fairy tale never told comes to life in a whole new way in this Shrek-tacular Herschel and Bishops Musical production of the Oscar-winning movie Shrek! This Tony-award-winning fairy-tale adventure rewrites the ‘happily ever after’. At its heart, the message to love and accept others no matter who they are, where they come from or what they look like and – just as important – to learn to love yourself. “Once upon a time, there was a little Ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who breaks the Disney mould. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there is one on hand… And his name is Shrek.

Performances will run on 16, 17, 18 and 20 March 2022 at 19:30. The performance on Saturday 19th will begin earlier to cater for our younger Shrek enthusiasts. Bookings open at 9:00am on Tuesday, 1 March, and tickets cost R150. Bookings can be made online at quicket.co.za or from the Herschel Senior School reception.

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Refrain:
Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
