We were tickled green when the production company and audio engineers decided to purchase some W1 cabling and snakes from us here at Echotone Music. Crews at the State Theatre in Cleveland Ohio got the equipment first and began getting it set up for the first run of shows at this magnificent venue.

What's New with Shrek in 2024?

The Tony Award-winning duo of Jeanine Tesori (music) and David Lindsay-Abaire (book) have revisited their creation, giving Shrek The Musical a facelift for this new tour. They've tweaked the score and script to emphasize the core message of self-acceptance and finding love in unexpected places.

Taking the helm for this reimagining is director and choreographer Danny Mefford. He's aiming to bring the show back to its roots, highlighting the humor and heart that made Shrek a pop culture phenomenon.
