Musical in park draws noise complaints, but police chief says he's 'not giving Shrek a ticket'

A musical being performed in a New Hampshire park has drawn some noise complaints, but the deputy police chief says he's "not giving Shrek a ticket."

"Shrek the Musical" is enjoying a summer run in the seacoast city of Portsmouth, but some neighbors want the volume turned down.

City police and City Councilor Esther Kennedy say they've been getting complaints about noise from the shows. But Deputy Police Chief Corey MacDonald tells the Portsmouth Herald and its Seacoast Online website (http://www.seacoastonline.com/ ) he has no plans to ticket the green ogre.

Kennedy says she'd like to outfit police officers with decibel meters so they can get an objective reading of how loud sounds are.

MacDonald says police are waiting for more direction from the community before engaging in any crackdown.
