TUTS picks Langley talent for Shrek: The Musical

A Langley Fine Arts School grad is putting her performance training to use by kissing an ogre.

Langley’s Lindsay Warnock stars in Shrek: the Musical as Princess Fiona.

It’s one of this summer’s showcases by Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) and runs alternating evenings July 11 to Aug. 23.

As Fiona, Warnock falls in love and marries ogre Shrek, finding a kindred spirit. Fiona, herself, is known to turn green and ogre-ish, thanks to a curse.

Fiona isn’t Warnock’s first foray onto the stage.

Her credits include Ethel Toffelmier in The Music Man (TUTS), Fate in a Presence of Monster (Dirty Laundry Creations), Mrs. Lovett in the Arts Club Stroll (Arts Club, DLC), and Nancy in The Boyfriend (Exit 22).

A Langley Fine Arts School graduate, Lindsay also studied musical theatre at Capilano University graduating from the Bachelor of Performing Arts program in 2014.

Shrek: The Musical is performed at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park on alternating evenings with TUTS other production, Legally Blonde: The Musical. Tickets are $20-$45. More information is at tuts.ca.
