The Loup City Public Library was proud to host the Crane River Theater Production of Page to Stage, a library outreach program for youth, on June 25, 2014. Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona and other fairy-tale characters from the ongoing production of Shrek The Musical read, performed and interacted with kids as they shared these famous stories. Community children had the opportunity to see the characters jump from the page to the stage and had the words come to life before their very own eyes. Thank you to all of those who attended this very special production.
