Join us in the quest of the Students Acting for the Community Program of Friends Meeting School as we present a benefit performance of Shrek, The Musical, Jr., with additional skits presented by the Maryland School for the Deaf at 1:30 PM on Sunday, March 26th. All proceeds will benefit the Frederick Community Action Agency’s Food Bank Program, and SHIP, the Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County.
This benefit performance of the family-friendly musical comedy follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle: learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others. Shrek’s unique story of discovery encourages each of us to examine our prejudices, review what we believe to be our limitations and work to better understand and believe in ourselves and others.
This performance event also brings the community together to help those in our area who are in need of food and shelter. The performance will be interpreted for the hearing impaired. Tickets are $10 plus canned or boxed food items. Group rates are available by contacting email@example.com.
