Who is going to play Donkey?

Staff writer

Everyone’s favorite ogre is coming to the auditorium, as the drama club announced Thursday that the spring musical will be Shrek: The Musical.
Opening night will be April 9.
The story is the same as the DreamWorks Animation movie released in 2001, and it follows an ogre, Shrek, and his journey through a mystical kingdom to rescue headstrong Princess Fiona. Along the way, Shrek encounters a donkey, gingerbread cookie, and various other characters from well-known fairy tales.
Shrek will be directed by Tony Melillo, a substitute teacher and football coach at the high school. Melillo recently moved into the school district, but has previously directed both professional theater and high school theater.
