Creative Edge presents musical theatre production

Abbotsford fine arts school holds show in Mission on May 18

Creative Edge School of Arts, Abbotsford’s largest fine arts school, hosts its fourth annual musical theatre event for all ages on Friday, May 18.

The production starts at 6 p.m. at the Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission.

The two-hour showcase features Shrek the Musical Jr., The Aristocats Kids, and selections from Hairspray.

The show includes 60 Creative Edge theatre and dance students (ages five to 16) who have been working on the plays since September as part of the school’s musical theatre training program.

Shrek Jr. is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and Broadway musical.

Everyone’s favourite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.

Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek Jr. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

The Aristocats Kids is based on the beloved Disney animated film and features a jazzy upbeat score.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and a portion of the proceeds from the performance will benefit the Abbotsford Hospice Society.

Tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for children and can be purchased from Creative Edge School of Arts (#300 – 3033 Immel St.) or at the door. Group tickets of 10 or more receive half-price admission.

Call 604-855-3343 for tickets or more information.
