Kids Camp: Shrek
All Kids Camp summer screenings are Pick Your Price – $1, $3, $5 – with 100% of ticket sales donated to these local non-profits: ATX Kids Club, Givens Swims by Forklift Danceworks, Kids in a New Groove, Saint Louise House, Ruby’s Rainbow and Special Olympics Texas.
A damsel is trapped inside a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon. An evil lord, who rules his land with an iron fist, sends a hero to save her.
What if we told you that this damsel knows kung-fu? And that instead of a handsome, square-jawed prince, our hero is a giant, green ogre who smells kinda weird?
SHREK takes everything you know about fairy tales and turns it on its head, telling the story of a curmudgeonly ogre who is forced to go on a quest in order to keep his home in the middle of a swamp. Its world is jam-packed with wacky twists on just about every fable and myth you can think of, giving kids a hilarious new adventure to enjoy while also giving parents a fresh take on well-worn stories.
With its irreverent humor, its playfulness with the “rules” of fairy tales, and its all-star cast (including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy), SHREK became a sensation upon its release nearly 20 years ago, and it’s as fun for kids today as it was the day it came out.
