Shrektacular. A great show for all the family!

Sunday Telegraph

Closed 28 Feb 2013

This all-new production straight from Broadway is based on Shrek's adventures in the classic William Steig book and Oscar-winning film.

Joining Shrek on his journey from the swamp to the stage will be his wisecracking sidekick Donkey, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad and a chorus of everybody's favorite fairytale creatures.

With more layers than ever and a completely original new score, SHREK THE MUSICAL proves that there's more to the story than meets the ears.
