Everyone’s favourite ogre has been brought to life in Shrek The Musical®, the spectacular stage show based on the Oscar-winning film.
Starring Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh, Richard Blackwood, Dean Chisnall and Neil McDermott, Shrek The Musical is a joyous, magical musical now playing at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London – and Westendtheatre.com presents our very first special offer to see the show.
Shrek The Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and great fun for all ages. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.
Shrek The Musical originally opened on Broadway in December 2008 and was nominated for eight Tony Awards. And now this brand new production has opened in London full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery.
The London stage musical is based on the irreverent fairy tale from William Steig’s book Shrek and the Oscar-winning Dreamworks Animation film. The creative team includes directors Jason Moore (Avenue Q) and Rob Ashford (Promises, Promises), with book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Olivier Award winner Jeanine Tesori, scenic, costume and puppet design by Tim Hatley, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound design by Peter Hylenski and choreography by Josh Prince.
