Shrek the Musical

Everyone’s favourite ogre is back in the hilarious musical spectacle based on the Oscar-winning, smash hit film. This is an Australian premiere by Packemin Productions – based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig.

The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
