SHREK! The Musical is onstage at the Orpheum Theatre through Sunday.
Whitney Winfield plays Princess Fiona in the production. She joined the show about 3 ½ weeks ago and says she’s excited to be touring with a production for the first time. Winfield says the show follows the first SHREK film closely but has additional songs.
She says she enjoys playing Fiona because the two have a lot in common. “She does have the princess qualities but she’s very quirky and zany. And she has been in a tower for a very long time which causes her to lose it a little bit. I’m a quirky person myself so it’s fun to do something that’s so closely related.”
