SHREK THE MUSICAL TOUR

tour of shrek the musical

Based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animated film, Shrek the Musical returns to the stage in a newly imagined production on a new UK tour from July 2023. Directed and choreographed by Nick Winston and Samuel Holmes with  design by Phil Whitcomb, it is produced by Mark Goucher and will open at Theatre Royal Plymouth on 21st  July, with further dates to be announced.

Based on William Steig's children's book and the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film, Shrek the Musical has a book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori. It premiered on Broadway in 2008 and ran at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in the West End from 2011, before embarking on a tour.

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters including Pinocchio, Cinderella and  the Three Pigs, raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad who wants to be the next king. . So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back

But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges and sets offf with his his best friend Donkey, yet finds something appealing and  strange about this pretty princess. He likes her a lot - but why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Below are the dates we have so far with more to follow along with casting news.
