Join Shrek (Dean Chisnall), our unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey (Richard Blackwood) as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful – if slightly temperamental – Princess Fiona (Kimberley Walsh) from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad (Neil McDermott), a gang of fairytale misfits and a biscuit with attitude and you’ve got this year’s must see new musical comedy Shrek The Musical.
Featuring new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I'm A Believer, Shrek The Musical brings the well-loved characters to life in a hilarious and spectacular new production based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film. The world of fairytales is turned upside down in an all singing, all dancing, irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance.

Shrek The Musical is soon to celebrate its first birthday in the West End and the swamp-dwelling ogre is having a party to mark the occasion.
On Sunday 6 May, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the home of Shrek and his fairytale friends, will open its doors to the public for a free family fete where there will be storytelling, party games, competitions and the opportunity to meet the fun-filled musical’s cast.
Following his birthday party, Shrek will say goodbye to Princess Fiona as she goes on an adventure to read much-loved stories to local children.
On her journey, she will stop off at the Tricycle theatre on 19 May and the Discover Storytelling Centre in Stratford on 16 June, where she will perform exclusive readings that bring the fairytale to life.
Since opening in the West End last year, the tale of the swamp-dwelling ogre who embarks on a life-changing adventure has been told over 400 times and has been seen by more than 600,000 people.
