Based on the smash hit animated film series, this live adaptation brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to the stage. In a far away kingdom turned upside down by the insecure and conniving Lord Farquaad, an ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue the feisty princess Fiona. Throw in a wisecracking Donkey, a fire-breathing Dragon, a Cookie with 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. Perfect for children and families, Shrek the Musical marries the bawdy humour of the original film with spectacular musical numbers added for the Broadway production.
Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and book by William Steig. Book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. Music by Jeanine Tesori.
