Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters raid his sanctuary, saying they've been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal - I'll get your houses back, if you give me my home back!

But when Shrek & Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own - he'll give the fairy-taled characters their homes back if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing - something strange & different - about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

In a nod to the 75th anniversary of the film Gone w/ the Wind, we present a rollicking comedy about how it got to the screen.

1939 Hollywood is abuzz.  Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone w/ the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchells' novel.  The screenplay, you see just doesn't work.

While fending off the film's stars, gossip columnists & his own father-in-law, Selznick send a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht & pulls director Victor Fleming from the set of the Wizard of Oz summoning both to his office. He locks the doors, closes the shades & on a diet of bananas & peanuts, the 3 men labor over 5 days to fashion the screenplay.  Join us for a fun look at the behind-the-scene birth of one of the most beloved films of all time.

Fast-moving & dynamic, it's a story that will keep you laughing.
