Shrek the Musical offering buy one get one tickets
FLINT — The Whiting is offering a buy one adult ticket and get one child ticket free for the Feb 1-2, 8 p.m., performances of Shrek the Musical.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, Shrek the Musical brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess.
Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a “short” temper, a cookie with an attitude and more than a dozen other fairytale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
Details: Call The Whiting’s Ticket Center at 810- 237-7333 and mention promo code GINGY. — G.G.
