Based on the Dreamworks film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony-Award-winning hilarious adventure that brings the beloved characters from the film to the stage. Follow the grumpy green ogre named Shrek as his hermit existence is thrown into chaos when a group of storybook favorites — Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Little Pigs and more — invade his swamp after being sent there by the short-tempered and comedic Lord Farquaad. To protect his swamp, Shrek agrees to save the lovely Princess Fiona, who has been waiting for her prince to rescue her, for Farquaad. With the help of his loyal sidekick, a talking donkey, Shrek learns that he’s not the only one that feels like a misfit and finds out what true love really means. Featuring all-new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change), Shrek The Musical turns the traditional fairy tale upside-down with dazzling puppetry, high-energy dance numbers, sidesplitting jokes and over-the-top characters.
