The Story's Villian

Fairy tales often use the same types of characters to create different stories. How many stories can you think of that have a princess? How many can you think of with witches or wizards?

If you don’t know the story of Shrek The Musical very well, make a prediction on who will be the villain of the story. Often a villain is the character in a play or a book who causes trouble for others. Draw a picture of what you are imagining.

If you have seen the movie (or read the book) of Shrek before, do you remember who the villain is? What kind of trouble did he make for other characters? Can you think of characters from other stories with a villain?

After you have seen the play, who do you think the villain is? Is it the same as what you thought before?
