Dragon, the real star of Shrek: The Musical

The Highland drama department put on a lovely production of Shrek: The Musical, which had a 5 night run from Thursday, March 3rd to Tuesday, March 8th, including a matinee on the 5th.

While every character in the play was portrayed wonderfully, one character, in particular, stood out to me the most. Hope Bradford, 10, excelled in her performance of the Dragon.

Her singing was powerful and really packed a punch. It’s almost as if she was made for the role. Sitting in the audience, I was so captivated that for a second, I almost forgot that she wasn’t a dragon, and instead, someone I go to school with and see every day.

The transformation from Hope Bradford to the Dragon is a lengthy and intriguing process.
