Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, SHREK THE MUSICAL is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori 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.
It is the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey (Carlos Velasquez) and a feisty princess, Fiona (Carli Stoutner) who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, Lord Farquaad (Riley Frank) a cookie, Gingy (Emi Hanvold) with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…..and his name is Shrek (Michael Carroll)!
