Uintah High School Drama brought about laughs and smiles with its latest comedy musical, Shrek, with performances that started March 6.

“The costumes are fantastic,” said Hannah Haynes, an attendant of the musical, “you can see just how much work was put into what these characters represent and how they would look like if they lived in our world.”

The production follows the story of Shrek, an ogre just as seen from the movie, and how he falls in love with a human princess.

“The role was difficult but worth it,” said Gus Scott, the actor for Shrek, “I had to get a voice coach for the accent and the costume was kind of heavy, but it was really fun to play a character that I’ve known since my childhood.”

The play will continue with shows on March 12-14, allowing those who haven’t seen it yet, more than one opportunity.
