“Music is an essential part of every student’s educational experience; it teaches cooperation, collaboration, creativity, and communication. It is important to support school music programs so children can enjoy the lifelong benefits of music study,” said Michael A. Butera, executive director, National Association for Music Education and Give a Note Foundation. “Shrek the Musical tells a story of love, friendship and finding your true self. The fact that the story is enhanced by music demonstrates the true power of musical expression. We’re very grateful to DreamWorks Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for their support and generosity.”

 

“We are proud that our live theater experience can give back to the educational community through this grant program,” said Bill Damaschke, Chief Creative Officer at DreamWorks Animation who also served as the producer of the Broadway show. “Full of high energy and fun, Shrek The Musical is a great introduction for kids to experience the magic of live theatre. The Shrek franchise continues to entertain audiences in a number of different ways.”

  1. That’s a great cause – music and arts are very important and should be preserved. I haven’t seen the music yet but I love the first Shrek movie.
