BOONE — “Shrek the Musical” will be performed at Appalachian Theatre of the High Country on July 21, 22 and 23 by the Beanstalk Community Theatre.

When Janet Speer, founder and artistic director for the Lees-McRae Summer Theatre, retired from the Blue Ridge Community Theatre, multiple children in the area began begging Amy Beane and Andrea McDonough to start a new theatre program. Beane and McDonough decided the lack of community theatre in the area had to be remedied.
