Things are going to get ugly!
Prepare to be transported Far Far Away as you join cantankerous ogre Shrek and his hilarious loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from her tower. It’s a hard task – she happens to be closely guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon.
Add the vertically challenged villain Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a ginger biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and a bit of romance. Will cranky Shrek discover that true love and happiness aren’t only true in fairytales as he ventures out of his swamp and on to our stage?
Based on the story and characters from the Oscar winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, fast-paced musical comedy. This family friendly show is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
