Encore Theatre Company
Shrek The MusicalBook and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Adaire, music by Jeanine Tesori
A spectacular stage musical based on the Oscar-winning film
‘Once upon a time there was an ogre named Shrek….’ and thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero and his loyal steed, Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental ) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire-breathing love sick dragon. Add the vertically- challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairy-tale misfits and a biscuit with attitude and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig, Shrek the Musical is a Tony award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring music by Jeanine Tesori with lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. Bringing all the beloved characters from the film to life on stage, Shrek the Musical is irreverent fun for all the family.
The perfect must-see family musical, heart-warming, fun and packed with laughs. Take an imprisoned princess, a wisecracking donkey, a short tempered bad guy and a gang of fairy-tale misfits and you have a situation that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there is one on hand….and his name is Shrek!
