Shrek The Musical is in Toronto for one more week - and BWW had an opportunity to go behind the scenes and watch Lukas Poost get 'Shrekked'. Turning the young actor into the big green ogre is no easy process, and we are thrilled to bring our readers photos of the undertaking from start to finish.
While getting green, Lukas was in good spirits, explaining the process and talking about how the company likes to turn most words into things with 'Shrek' in the title. For example, the warts that get painted onto his head are called 'shrekkles'! Check out the photos to watch the entire transformation!

Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and since then has been lucky enough to be involved in various theatre activities and productions, including a regional production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and a local production of Where the Sidewalk Ends. She has also received training from various teachers throughout Southwestern Ontario in both piano and voice, and competed in vocal competitions for which she received a few awards. Her writing career started almost by accident, when she had the opportunity to become a ghostwriter for up and coming businesses. She continues to do this, writing the content for all sorts of companies who are starting websites and looking to find their voice. |
Her passion and love for theatre led to her becoming involved with BroadwayWorld where she is thrilled to be writing for the Toronto contingent of the rapidly growing website. When she isn't at the theatre, you can generally find her firmly planted in front of her trusty Blackberry - tweeting, Facebooking or partaking in other such social media activities to ensure that those who want to know are kept apprised of everything that Toronto theatre has to offer. Other interests include movies, art, music, shopping, fashion and martial arts with the occasional foray into the world of finance.
