Shrek The Musical tickets

Directed by Jason Moore, Shrek the Musical is the smash-hit stage adaptation of the 2001 DreamWorks film Shrek, starring Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy. With a book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by composer Jeanine Tesori, this fairy-tale musical is a fantastical family treat.

When Shrek, a fearsome and lonely ogre, discovers his swamp has been overrun by fairy-tale creatures, he must make a deal with the devil, or rather the treacherous and tiny Lord Farquaad, in order for him to once again call his swamp home. Shrek must go on a quest to save the beautiful Princess Fiona, but instead of everything going smoothly, Fiona’s feisty attitude as well as her dark secret makes Shrek feel that maybe the company of other people isn’t quite as bad as he once thought.

Shrek the Musical has proven incredibly popular with the critics, receiving Olivier Award nominations for Best New Musical and Best Costume Design. Nigel Lindsay was also nominated for an Olivier award for Best Actor in a Musical for his leading role as Shrek. The show also won the award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical, going to Nigel Harman for his portrayal of the 4ft tall pernicious Lord Farquaad.

As well as Harman and Lindsay, the show is packed full with reputable stars. Richard Blackwood stars as Donkey and Kimberly Walsh as Princes Fiona. With an array of performers whose credits include BAFTA winning films, television, radio and music careers and twenty consecutive top ten singles in the UK charts, it is fair to say the audience will be not be disappointed by this talented bunch.

Performance dates: 26 Apr 2011 - 24 Feb 2013

Running time: 2 hours and 15 minutes with one

Special notice: Shrek the Musical is the perfect theatre show for all the family and will prove a real treat for all ages.

'Shrek' was an enjoyable show with a few memorable songs but overall, I felt that it lacked the charm of the film. However, points certainly have to be given for translating the world of 'Shrek' onto the stage, which was no easy challenge. The dragon singer is certainly the strongest vocal in the show.
