With a production as sharp as a Donkey one-liner, this big-hearted, award-winning musical has a canny way of appealing to all ages.
The production is a heartwarming story about acceptance, friendship and the beauty that lies within us all… teaching us that it’s okay to be different, and that true love can be found in the most unexpected places.
Be swept along the journey by magnificent sets, clever digital projection, and lavish costumes that help bring each character to life. All supported by a live band, that together, fill the stage with sound, colour and monstrous energy.
This is Shrek how he was meant to be seen – from the screen to live on stage.
Retaining all the impact of the blockbuster film, this Shrektacular stage adaptation features a cast brimming with infectious enthusiasm.
Theatre legend Antony Lawrence (The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Matilda the Musical, and We Will Rock You) stars as Shrek, and ‘bursts on to the stage with all the presence the part demands’ (Yorkshire Times). Joanne Clifton (Strictly Come Dancing, The Addams Family), is ‘an absolute revelation as Princess Fiona’ (Cheshire Live), while Olivier-Award nominated James Gillan (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Wicked, Taboo!) is ‘as magnificent a villain as you could hope for’ (Great British Life) as the evil Lord Farquaad. Theatre favourite Brandon Lee Sears (Dreamgirls, Come From Away, Motown) is a scene stealer as sassy Donkey, ‘ringing every ounce out of the part and topping it off with vocals that were a huge hit with the audience’ (Yorkshire Times).
