Bay Ridge is going green — ogre green!

The Narrows Community Theater is staging its production of “Shrek the Musical” Friday and Saturday night, as well as Sunday afternoon at the Fort Hamilton Army Base Theater (403 General Lee Ave. between MacArthur Road and Pershing Loop). Like the movie, the family-friendly production also serves surreptitious adult humor, making it equally good for a date night or family outing. Friday and Saturday night shows begin at 8 pm, and the singing starts at 2 pm on Sunday.

Once the kids are safely tucked away in bed dreaming of talking donkeys and humming “I’m a Believer,” it is time to hit the town! On Friday, head to the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), where Brit-pop revivalists London Fog will roll in at 9 pm. Then on Saturday, check out all-female headbangers She-Rox, jamming out to classic rock tunes at Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) at 10 pm.

Thursday is the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and Bay Ridge is draping itself in red, white, and blue for the solemn occasion. Bay Ridge crooner Martin McQuade will sing songs about New York City at Hunter’s Steak and Ale House (9404 Fourth Ave. between 94th and 95th streets). The tribute is totally free and starts at 7 pm. And State Sen. Martin Golden is also hosting an annual memorial at the American Veterans Memorial Pier (69th Street and Shore Parkway) at 7:30 pm. The evening calls for patriotic song and speeches. Bring a chair or blanket.
