For two performances in February, the North Babylon High School Drama Club presented “Shrek the Musical.” Based on the DreamWorks film “Shrek” and William Steig’s book of the same name, the musical told the story of the famous green ogre, played by Daniel Benson and his trusted companion Donkey, played by Elijah Andrews, as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona, played by Lily LaFleur, from Lord Farquaad, played by Joe Pascone.

Directed by David Signorelli, the students rehearsed for weeks learning complicated choreography and stage direction and memorizing lines and songs. Making this a complete student-led production, students were in charge of lighting, sound, set design and costumes.

“It was a great show with a full house both nights,” said Mr. Signorelli.
