Broadway on Tour, a nonprofit youth theater based in Santa Ana, opens its 25th year with “Shrek, The Musical.”

As a community based non-profit organization, part of their mission is to make sure everyone in the community has access to the theatre. Using a tuition-based model, all students interested in participating are given the opportunity to be a part of their shows. Also, a few performances are set aside for invited community members and organizations (like women’s shelters, foster care, etc.) to see their shows for free.

Performances are on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. from now through Oct. 13 (no performance Oct. 6) at the Ebell Theater, 625 French Street, Santa Ana. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to
