Marvelous turn-out for Uni’s “Shrek the Musical”
[Posted April 24, 2017] Audiences filled the Stivelman Theater last week for the four performances of “Shrek the Musical.”
Starring one of the largest casts in Uni history, the special Student program last Wednesday opened to a full house and folks who came on each of the next three days were treated to a rousing show, produced under the direction of Uni alum Ronnie Sperling ‘76.
“‘Shrek’ did really well,” said Sperling afterwards. “Every since I came aboard, we’ve been raising the bar every show. We had fabulous costumes and great sets; it really looked like a real Broadway show on our stage. The casting was great and the audiences loved it.”
“Shrek The Musical” was presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). The Uni Theater Arts program is supported by UCLA’s Beyond the Bell and the Uni Hi Education Foundation. For more on Uni’s theatre arts program, check out its Facebook page.
