Shrek! 

''Let your freak flag wave, let your freak flag fly...''

Shrek! 5th - 9th February 2020

Everyone's favourite ogre is back in the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film.

 

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek..." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand…and his name is Shrek.

 

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, SHREK THE MUSICAL is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline or Change) and a side-splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears. With incredible scenery and costumes this musical comedy is not to be missed!
