SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, 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.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone.

So please join Pinocchio, Gingy, Farquaad, Donkey, Fiona, and of course, Shrek in this wonderful Broadway adaptation of the famous Dreamworks animated movie. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek the Musical delights with dancing rats, a swamp full of misfit fairy tale characters, and references to over a dozen other popular musicals. Follow Shrek on his sometimes brave, sometimes gassy journey to win the heart of a princess! This two act musical is rated PG.
