Get your Shrek fix at Neptune

Neptune Theatre's 2015/16 season launch was announced yesterday, and yes, there is a Shrek musical. Now in its 53rd season, Neptune's lineup includes six productions as part of the Fountain Hall series, and three in the Studio series. There are also four "bonus features": Hank Williams Live – 1952 October 9-11, brought to life by Joe Matheson; Ladies of Song starring Karen Myatt January 29-31—Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Edith Piaf, Barbra Streisand and more in what I can only imagine is a pretty cool Little Voice scenario; Remembering Patsy Cline & Friends May 20-22—Margot Sampson sings Cline, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and more, and Rant and Raise with Rick Mercer at the Spatz Theatre, Mercer speaks his mind in support of Neptune, one night only May 13.

The 52nd season closes with The Addams Family on the Fountain Hall stage April 7 - May 24 and Trudeau Stories performed by Brooke Johnson, plays April 21-May 3. Tickets for both shows are available online at, in person at the box office, by phone at 902-429-7070 or toll free 1-800-565-7345.
