What our patrons are saying about Shrek...

I was able to bring 200 middle school students to a school production of "Shrek"-- for many this was their first time to see a live production-- and they were blown away!! Several could not believe that they were watching other students from Amarillo and kept asking if the singing was recorded. Jason and company have done it again, given us theatre that inspires.

Kim Shreffler - Amarillo

Thank you for directing such a great performance! We all LOVED it.

Lori Craig - Amarillo

What enormous talent we have in our community! ALT's Academy production of Shrek the Musical is a monster of a success. Following the basic storyline of the popular movie, this version featured fresh new music, brilliantly designed costumes, and none other than Amarillo's brightest young stars-- 96 of them in total! Don't miss Prince Farquod's vaulted ego, Donkey's unconditional friendship, Fiona's multifaceted personality, and all the loveable layers of Shrek's heart.

Jason Hudson - Amarillo

I saw ALT Academy's Shrek the Musical last night, and I was completely blown away. Between the incredible talent, the amazing costumes, and the brilliant direction of so many young actors, everyone involved should be so proud! What a fantastic evening you gave us. I'm so amazed and inspired!

Annika Johansson - Amarillo

The stars were out in Amarillo on Friday October 18th...Not just the heavenly bodies in the sky but also the ones shining brightly on the ALT stage for the opening night of Shrek. Each and every actor lit up the stage through their amazing acting ability, adorable costumes, and overall stage presence under the genius direction of Jason Crespin. It was a true joy to see the faces of all the parents, other adults, and kids sitting in the audience beaming with delight throughout each act. Bravo to ALT Academy, Jason Crespin, and all the actors in between! Keep Calm and Duloc On!

Cindy Singleton - Amarillo

The ALT Academy never ceases to amaze me! Shrek the Musical was phenomenal. It showcased the students' talent so perfectly, and made me so proud of our Theatre and the kids in this community. I belly laughed throughout the show, and left amazed by the strength of the voices and the way the difficult music was performed. This is a can't miss production!

Brett Spalding - Amarillo

Amazing. Captivating. Fun. Inspiring. Shrek: The Musical is all of those things, and so much more. The talent of the cast and crew bubbles to the surface in this swamp-stomping romp of a musical that takes us on a journey with Shrek and Donkey as they rescue Princess Fiona and help the displaced fairytale characters defy the villainous Lord Farquaad. The acting, the singing and dancing, and the well-timed crew who set the stage for this production have truly transported us deep within Shrek: The Musical's message of how we should all embrace our uniqueness.

Jason Crespin directs the show, and once again he impresses. ...it's not too much to say that Jason Crespin has once more proven that a ticket purchase for an ALT Academy production is money well spent...Bravo to all of these members of the team who shaped and guided the Shrek: The Musical production.

...The standing ovation usually begins when the cast takes the stage for bows, but on opening night the audience was standing and clapping with raised hands as the last notes of the finale song were belted out.

If you are reading this before this production's run has concluded, do whatever it takes to get a ticket to the final performances. And if you're late to this review, there's always another ALT or ALT Academy production just around the corner. Buy a ticket and enjoy the ride. And LET YOUR FREAK FLAG FLY!
