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.

This musical has enjoyed a record-breaking UK and Ireland tour and the smash hit blockbuster is back and larger than life! 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.



Added to this there is the short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and about twelve other fairy tale misfits. Also appearing in the stage production will be the aforesaid Lord Farquaad. With all of these characters, you've got an irresistible comedy with adventure, and romance that's guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!

Shrek The Musical JR is indeed a Tony Award-winning fairytale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori and a very funny book by David Lindsay-Abaire.



Songs in this production include:
I Know It's Today
Overture/Big Bright Beautiful World
Story of My Life
The Goodbye Song
Don't Let Me Go
What's Up, Duloc?
I Know It's Today
Travel Song
Forever
This is How a Dream Comes True
Who I'd Be
Entr'acte
Morning Person
I Think I Got You Beat
The Ballad Of Farquaad

In the musical, there will be all the beloved characters you know from the film. These will be brought to life on stage, and proves "there's more to the story than meets the ears!" There will be some fabulous costumes, sets and puppets including the fire-breathing dragon and more.

Book now as this will be fun for the whole family, as Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
