ROSWELL, Ga. – A 12-foot-tall dragon is the centerpiece of the upcoming production of "Shrek, the Musical" at Crabapple Middle School.

On his way to work with "Sesame Street," professional puppeteer Avery Jones came to work with the four CMS students chosen to manipulate the custom-made dragon on-stage.

Avery is the puppet master for the Springer Opera House in Columbus, Ga., as well as co-creator for the CTN animated show, "Heath and the Checker Shoe Band."

The award-winning drama club from Crabapple Middle School is the first middle school to ever perform the full score of "Shrek, the Musical." It will be ready by mid-March and boasts a cast of more than 90 students. This production of "Shrek" will reacquaint audiences with Fiona, the Gingerbread Man, Donkey, Dragon, Lord Farquaad and, of course, the ogre himself, Shrek.

"Shrek has quickly become one of my favorite musicals. With a beautiful script and score, the cast is having a blast telling their stories and becoming their characters. They make them come to life. The audience will in no way feel like they are watching a middle school production. They will truly be captivated and taken into the world of Duloc and the Swamp," said Crabapple drama coach Sarah Stoffle.

"Shrek, the Musical" will begin March 14 at 7 p.m. and run through the weekend. It will perform at the Milton Center, 86 School Drive, Alpharetta, Ga. 30009.
