“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek....” And thus, begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered wannabe king, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other classic fairy tale misfits, and you've got the makings of a riotously dysfunctional road trip, and a time to put the ‘fun’ back in dysfunctional.
Shrek the Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, bringing all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears! Irreverently fun, but appropriate for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre. It’s the greatest fairy tale never told!
