Green is a very popular color in the entertainment world, with witches, monsters, frogs and … okra! Yes, Okra. Shrek The Musical recently played the Bologna Performing Arts Center, part of the Delta State University campus in Cleveland, Mississippi, where our namesake met the local green celebrity – Delta State’s mascot The Fighting Okra. That’s one way to get your vegetables.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Shrek thought he was in heaven when arriving in Longview he learned the name of the theatre was the Belcher Center! What could be more perfect for a gaseous ogre? “Better out than in!” he always says.
