Leading the cast as beloved swamp-dwelling ogre ‘Shrek’ is Steffan Harri, having previously starred in the original UK tour of SHREK THE MUSICAL®, and Call the Midwife star Laura Main who plays ‘Princess Fiona’ at Sunderland and selected venues. Marcus Ayton stars as Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick ‘Donkey’ and Samuel Holmes as pint-sized villain ‘Lord Farquaad’.
Join our unlikely hero Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK THE MUSICAL® brings over 100 much-loved fairytale characters, plus a 14-foot dragon, to life in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza.
SHREK THE MUSICAL® is directed by Nigel Harman, and is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek! and the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animations feature film.
