Two local shows open tonight, making it a big weekend for theater fans:
BEING GREEN: The Fresno premiere of “Shrek the Musical,” complete with its own 16-foot dragon, opens tonight at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater. The Good Company Players production features Tyler Branco in the title role, Emily Pessano as Fiona, Christian David and Tony Sanders sharing the role of Donkey and Teddy Maldonado as Lord Farquaad. I wrote about the dragon in my Sunday Spotlight column.
GLAD TO BE PLAID: CenterStage Clovis Community Theatre opens the musical “Forever Plaid” at the Clovis Veterans Memorial Auditorium. The quartet is played by Peter Allwine, Darren Tharp, Eric Estep and Kyle Dodson. I have an interview with Dodson in today’s Life section. Note: This is a one-weekend run with only four performances, so it’ll be gone in a flash.
