Not every story is a fairy tale. This is exactly the case in “Shrek the Musical Jr.,” which Noonan Academy students are scheduled to put on March 29-31.

The play is an adoption of the movie ”Shrek” released in 2001, and “Shrek the Musical,” which later followed the success of the movie.

Every year for the past 14 years, Noonan Academy has carried on the tradition of choosing different plays to put on for the community and Noonan families.
