About this show

An entirely new musical which opened on Broadway in December 2009, Shrek the Musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig's book, as well as the first chapter of the DreamWorks Animation Shrek film series. Set in a faraway kingdom turned upside down, the musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre, who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't only found in fairy tales. Featuring an original score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek the Musical is "far, far and away" a play the whole family will love.
