Shrek the Musical is a one-of-a-kind, hilarious fairy tale in which curses are reversed, monsters get the girls, donkeys and dragons find love, and princesses are beautiful in all shapes and sizes.

Taking place in a mythical land, Shrek the Musical follows the adventures of a large, grumpy green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy tale characters including Pinocchio, Gingerbread Man, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, and others, raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.

Shrek strikes a deal: “I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back!” But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, and travels to Princess Fiona’s prison, rescues her from a fire-breathing dragon, and then – scariest of all – is forced to spend time with the princess as he tries to bring her back to evil Farquaad. Surprisingly, Shrek finds he likes Fiona – A LOT. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

With dazzling sets, high-energy dance numbers, and laughs by the minute, Shrek the Musical transforms the contemporary children’s book and popular animated feature film into a stage musical that is sure to entertain and make audiences believers in happy endings for all.
