“Good morning birds, good morning trees. Oh what a lovely day,” Crystal Drennon (Fiona) sings as she waltzes across the stage. The eight counts echo through the Euclid High School Auditorium as Choreographer, Heather Koniz works with Ricardo Martin (Pied Piper) on a tap routine to the song “Morning Person,” that features 23 enthusiastic Euclid elementary students. 

According to Ken Ferlito and several cast members, the show is full of surprises.  About 142 students make up the cast and crew, including leads Kevin Terry (Shrek) and Issac Vicar (Donkey).  Cast members are busy rehearsing every day after school and some weekends.  The stage crew spends evenings and weekends perfecting the set.  Stage crew member, Jacob Hogget shared his excitement about the sets and how many of the sets are borrowed from the Broadway traveling show of Shrek.
