Save up to $80 on preview tickets now available

The Broadway smash hit Shrek The Musical is coming to Sydney. And from experience, I know that buying tickets for such shows just before Christmas can be a costly experience.

Which is why you may wish to take advantage of the preview tickets, now available for the January 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 shows. These are as low as $49.90 (plus the inevitable $8.95 handling fee).

Of course, this won't get you the best seat in the house. But tickets for these preview shows range from $49.90 - $99.90 instead of the usual $59.90 to $180. So you can save money on your tickets.

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.

The show features 19 songs, lots of laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery. The romantic and twisted fairy tale will jump off the screen and into Sydney Lyric - Pyrmont this January.

The New York Times called it 'True Happiness' and The Daily Mirror said it's 'the most fun you'll ever have'.

Shrek The Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and irreverent fun for all. The show is suitable for ages 6 and up and runs for approx. 2 hours & 30 minutes, including interval.
