The lavish multi-million-dollar musical stars Ben Mingay as Shrek, Lucy Durack as Princess Fiona and there is a special guest appearance by Marcia Hines as The Dragon.
The musical is based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film, Shrek. Shrek was first launched as a musical in 2008. Since then, the production has received eight Tony Award nominations, 12 Drama Desk nominations, ten Outer Critics Circle nominations, three drama league nominations and a Grammy nomination for Best Musical Show Album.
You probably know the story. Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-forlorn dragon. There the audience will meet Lord Farquaad, a motley of fairytale misfits, a biscuit with attitude, and mayhem, laughter and romance will ensue.
