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?.
