A trio of Storytellers share the tale of a little ogre named SHREK. Papa and Mama Ogre sit Shrek down and tell him it is time for him to leave home. Shrek transforms into an adult and finds contentment living alone in a swamp on the edge of the kingdom of Duloc. Suddenly, the Captain of the Guards appears, leading a large group of Fairy Tale Creatures (Pinocchio, the Big Bad Wolf, the 3 Pigs, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Ugly Duckling, and the 3 Bears) into the swamp. The characters have been exiled from Duloc and banished to the swamp. Shrek returns home to find his swamp teeming with the new inhabitants and angrily sets off to confront the leader of Duloc. As Shrek makes his way to Duloc, he encounters a Donkey being chases by more guards from Duloc. Shrek scares off the guards, and, having lost his way, reluctantly agrees to let Donkey be his guide. Meanwhile in Duloc, Lord Farquaad tortures Gingy, who tells him the whereabouts of a princess that he could marry in order to become King and gain control of Duloc. Gingy tells of Princess Fiona who is in a tower guarded by a dragon! Shrek and Donkey arrive in Duloc and Shrek demands the swamp be rightfully returned to him. Farquaad agrees to find a new home for the Fairy Tale Creatures if Shrek retrieves the princess Fiona for him. Shrek climbs the tower to get Fiona, who mistakes Shrek for a knight. Donkey is chased by the Dragon, who falls in love with him and spares his life. After escaping the Dragon, Shrek, Donkey and Fiona set off for Duloc. Shrek tells Fiona that he is not a knight, but an ogre. The storytellers reveal that Fiona has been under a curse causing her to live “by day one way, and by night another.” As the journey continues Donkey is convinced that Shrek and Fiona have a budding romance happening. Donkey discovers Fiona’s secret—that she has transformed into an ogress! Fiona explains that she has been cursed to live as a human by day, and by night an ogre. She sees Lord Farquaad as her chance to break the spell. Lord Farquaad comes to claim and marry Fiona, but just as the Bishop is about to marry them, Shrek and the Fairy Tale Creatures burst in. Shrek proclaims his love for Fiona, but Lord Farquaad says it’s too late. Dragon crashes in and that is the end of Farquaad. Shrek and Fiona share “true love’s kiss,” and the spell is broken. Fiona doesn’t turn back into a human and Shrek convinces her she is beautiful as she is!
