Shrek the Musical

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 to Sunday, February 11, 2018

Based on the story and characters from the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek the Musical is the hilarious and spectacular production that turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, must-see musical comedy.

Join Shrek, our unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon. Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
