Shrek The Musical

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

St James Players is a community group dedicated to theatre and music. From our simple beginnings in 1972, St. James Players have entertained thousands of Peterborough residents and visitors alike with our musical theatre productions.

St. James Players started out in a very modest way performing in the church hall, borrowing costumes, improvising a stage and using whatever was available for sets. Ours was a simple goal: to provide musical theatre opportunities for the young people of our community. As our performers and backstage workers became more experienced, our productions became more ambitious. We moved out into the community, renting larger venues to stage these musical productions for our building audience. We now present our fall productions at Showplace every November but we still do our spring productions at the end of April in the large auditorium at St. James United Church.
