Shrek the Musical

A big, green, terrifying ogre living alone on a swamp doesn’t sound like a fairy tale hero, but then, this is no ordinary fairy tale! When your travelling companion is a wisecracking Donkey, the feisty princess Fiona needs rescuing from a fire-breathing dragon, you’re surround by fairy tale misfits and the bad guy is the vertically challenged, short tempered ruler of Duloc, that calls for a real hero...and his name is Shrek!

Based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Tony Award-winning Shrek The Musical brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears!
