August 7, 2015 — Shrek (Rocco Barbera), Fiona (Alexis Lounsbury), and Donkey (Shaun Laurencio) paid a visit to pediatric patients of Inspira Medical Center Vineland on Wednesday. The stars of the Off Broad Street Players’ production of Shrek the Musical posed for pictures and chatted with children, families, and staff members in the David B. Rosenberg, M.D., Children’s Care Unit between weekends of performances at Levoy Theatre in Millville.

“Shrek, Princess Fiona, and Donkey brought smiles to the faces of everyone, especially our young patients and visitors,” said Paul Simon, a communications manager for Inspira Health Network. “We are grateful to the Off Broad Street Players for including us in their community service efforts.”

Based on DreamWorks Animation’s 2001 blockbuster Shrek, the Broadway sensation wraps up its debut at the Levoy with performances tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.

Tonight’s performance will feature American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters, who will convey the musical’s dialogue and lyrics from beside the stage for the benefit of hearing-impaired audience members. Special seating has been reserved for hearing-impaired guests.
