 The second show was Forever Plaid. Which is about a singing group that comes back after being killed in a car accident in the early 1960's. I know, the "feel good" show. It's a juke box musical,which is a show with a very thin plot that has a ton of oldies.  It only have  a cast of 4, plus 2 musicians. Can you say "The easy show"? Andrew Poston, Olin Davidson, Imari Thompson and Steven Bidwell.

A show like Shrek has a major make-up challenge: The actor has to wear a rubber headpiece, a nose, green make-up, over sized rubber hands and a fat suit. There's a company that  makes the headpieces, hands and ears. 

 Here's the finished look. Alexander Mendoza and Erika Moore, make-up artist.

 Here's what Alexander looks like in My Fair Lady, where he played Freddy Eynsford-Hill. Quit a difference.

 After before and after. Shrek wasn't the only one that worn the make-up. You can see Papa Shrek behind Erika, and Mama Shrek, Fiona,and Baby Shrek also wore the make-up. They got spandex hoods with the ears attached instead of the head piece. They had to change to other characters during the show.


 After show meet and greet with a group of happy children.
