Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

Come and see us in May!

Due to its outstanding history and reputation COS Musical Theatre has been granted the exclusive rights to be the only amateur group in the South East to perform this amazing show in 2019.

Based on the Oscar-winning animation, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure that brings all of the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage.

The story is of a hulking green ogre who exists in happy isolation in an ugly green swamp. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Tickets: £20 (discounts: £19). Child: £16.
