Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical brings the fairytale to life in this all-singing, all-dancing, visually-spectacular musical comedy. Join unlikely hero, Shrek, as he heads out on a quest with his trusty sidekick, Donkey, to rescue the feisty Princess Fiona. Add in a fire-breathing dragon, a host of fairytale misfits and the smaller-than-life Lord Farquaad and you have the perfect potion to delight audiences young and old.

The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise.  In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town! 

The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491  Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
