SHREK THE MUSICAL TOUR

Shrek the Musical

Producers of SHREK THE MUSICAL® have announced that, following the success of the first ever UK and Ireland Tour which ended in February 2016, the production will be embarking on a new nationwide tour later this year.

The tour is again being directed by Nigel Harman who played the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad during the West End run and won an Olivier Award for his performance. His television credits include heart-throb Dennis Rickman in EastEnders.

SHREK THE MUSICAL® is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek! and the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animations feature film. Originally directed in the West End by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford, the production has book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Jeanine Tesori with multi award-winning set and costume design by Tim Hatley. It is being produced on tour by Neal Street Productions, Playful Productions, Ron Kastner, Saracen Films, Tulchin/Bartner Productions, Gavin Kalin, Glass Half Full Productions/Just For Laughs Theatricals, Lee Menzies and Mark Cartwright.

Join our unlikely hero Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK THE MUSICAL brings over 100 much-loved fairytale characters, plus a 14 foot dragon, to life in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza.

Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey set off on an adventure to rescue the beautiful - if slightly temperamental - Princess Fiona from her tower, where she is guarded by a fire breathing lovesick dragon.

Add to this a wannabe King (Lord Farquaad) with a problem about his height, a bunch of fairytale superstars and a biscuit with attitude and you've got Shrek the Musical. This spectacular new production turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all singing, all dancing mix of magic, laughter and romance. It will feature all new songs as well as the cult Shrek anthem “ I'm a Believer”.
