Shrek The Musical

"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, a fire breathing dragon 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 that brings all the beloved characters from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

Shrek The Musical presents a treasure trove of irreverent fun for the whole family and proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Following a sell-out run of the production of Cats, GSA returns to the Yvonne Arnaud stage with this larger than life smash hit blockbuster!

Must-see musical theatre for all the family! Don’t miss it!
