Shrek-takular musical of Shrek and his adventures
Everyone's favourite ogre is back in the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning, smash hit film. Shrek the movie is a favourite of many people, both young and old. This was one movie that I really enjoyed watching with my grandchildren.
The endearing character of Shrek made it interesting and cute! Shrek is a grumpy, smelly and ugly ogre, living peacefully in a swamp. The story goes that one night, he suddenly finds his land has been squatted by a mob of fairytale creatures (Pinocchio, The Three Little Pigs, Peter Pan, Snow White and Cinderella among others).
These characters were banished by the evil Lord Farquaad. One of these is a donkey, who will just not keep quiet. Shrek is accompanied by this noisy character when he confronts Lord Farquaad, demanding his land back. The story continues from there ....
Now there is a stage musical version of this great movie and you could see it in Perth from 22nd to 29th September 2018. It will be held at Hertha Reserve, 21 Cedric Street, Stirling.
It is produced by Apan Entertainment and Hama Productions and prices are from $45 to $160. For discounted tickets, use the code word "FIONA" for a $5 discount on each ticket. Make your bookings here for either a matinee or a 7.00 pm show.

It is of course, based on the story and characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film. It is a humorous and gigantic fairytale production which has a lot of singing, dancing and musical comedy throughout the show.
The unlikely hero, Shrek, will be joined by his loyal, wisecracking Donkey, as they set off on a journey to rescue the beautiful and temperamental, Princess Fiona from her tower. The princess's tower is however guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon and Fiona resists being rescued.
