“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 who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, SHREK: The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy-tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.
SHREK: The Musical brings 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.

“Dwayne Gordon …deserves praise for his portrayal of Lord Farquaad. Gordon has a knack for playing bad guys we love to hate.”
“The costumes and make-up were stellar.”
“Dan Comeau and Mandy Wiltshire were scene-stealing as Donkey and Dragon, respectively. Comeau’s Donkey …serving Donkey-drag realness that brought the sass to a level that I never knew I needed. Put him next to Wiltshire’s diva Dragon, and the chemistry was on fire.“
“VOS really shines… giving audiences what they really want”
