Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, ohGr Set to Star in Shrek The Musical


BROADWAY, NY—Nivek Ogre, the legendary frontman of Skinny Puppy and ohGr, has announced that he will be starring in the latest round of the musical adaptation of DreamWorks' Shrek. Though Ogre has previous film experience and shows interest in cinema, no one expected him to announce his involvement in Shrek the Musical.

"DreamWorks first contacted me about two or three months ago and said they would be ecstatic to have an Ogre play Shrek. After all, they did not want to be accused of cultural appropriation. I tried telling them that I wasn't an actual ogre, but they wouldn't listen. At least I'll get to write the music for the film," recounted Ogre.

Nivek Ogre is planning on writing out an electro-industrial album for the musical. If all goes well he did say he was planning on releasing a 2xLP limited edition version for the soundtrack of Shrek: The Electro-Industrial Musical.

The latest tour of the musical staring Ogre as the green ogre is set to start in spring of 2018 with further co-stars yet to be announced.
