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 wonderful songs, great dancing and fun scenery, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

SHREK is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
