Shrek the Musical

Musical

A delight for the whole family, this musical based on the beloved Dreamworks film character and William Steig’s 1990s book will charm even the hardest ogre-ness out of everyone. This wonderful musical ran for 12 months on Broadway and is now adapted to a family friendly one-act experience. 

Watch the ogre Shrek leave his home and give up his privacy to rescue the princess Fiona, herself under a curse that makes her nervous about her looks. In this fairy tale world, there is someone for everyone no matter what they look like. Under the guidance of theatrical magician Rosemary Newcott, this show will transport audiences to a rich visual experience with a hilarious take on fairy tales. Magic for the kids, romance for the romantics, and snarky humor for all.
