Breakfast with Shrek

CCA FAME flips flapjacks to support spring musical
The cast of “Shrek the Musical” performs during the FAME Fine Arts Booster Club pancake breakfast Saturday, March 7, at the Clear Creek Amana High School in Tiffin. The show takes the stage in the Performing Arts Center April 16, 17, and 18.

TIFFIN– Once again, a larger-than-life character will leap from the big screen to the stage at the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) High School’s Performing Arts Center as “Shrek the Musical” opens next month.
In an effort to help offset the cost of the production, including rental of costumes, set pieces and backdrops, the CCA FAME Fine Arts Booster Club held its annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, March 7, with the proceeds raised through free-will donations going directly to the show. The Johnson County Pork Producers and Amana Meats donated ham and sausage to the meal while Fareway provided discounts.
The cast and choir of the show performed selections throughout the four-hour event with Shrek (Joey Lepire), Donkey (Morgan Malli), Princess Fiona (Sam Scheetz) and Pinocchio (Miranda Mason) posing for photos and visiting with diners.
The show opens on Thursday, April 16, and runs through Saturday, April 18, with four performances, one each on Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m., a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee, and the final performance at 7 p.m. on Saturday. General admission tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.
