LYNDONVILLE – Thomas Follman of Lyndonville plays Shrek and Regan Stacey of Medina is Fiona in “Shrek,” which will be performed in Lyndonville 7:30 p.m. today, 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Stroyan Auditorium. Tickets are available at the door.

Leif Isaacson of Lyndonville plays Lord Farquaad. Based on the animated film of the same name, Shrek features a story about becoming who you are truly meant to be, said Jennifer Trupo, director of the musical in Lyndonville.

Shrek the Ogre (Thomas Follman) wants to rid his swamp of the fairytale creatures who were dumped there by Lord Farquaad’s henchmen. Shrek and his sidekick Donkey (Joe Mangiola of Medina) set out to rescue Princess Fiona from her Dragon-guarded tower and return her to her “one true love,” Lord Farquaad. (Jessie Harling of Lyndonville plays the Dragon.)

Along the journey, Fiona and Shrek begin to fall in love, but many complications arise.

Pinocchio is played by Victoria Carter of Medina.This year’s production features a cast and crew of over 60 Lyndonville and Medina students. They have been working tirelessly since the beginning of November to prepare a production full of singing, dancing and special effects.
