Shrek The MusicalGiven Shrek's popularity at the Box Office it was only a matter of time before a live version took to the West End stage. Starting in May and running through to early 2012 - and possibly beyond - the eagerly-anticipated Shrek The Musical brings the much loved characters from the Oscar-winning animation film to life and features all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I'm a Believer. Join Shrek, our 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 diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you've got this year's must-see new musical comedy. On the stage of the historic Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the world of fairytales is turned upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance.

 

About Theatre Royal Drury Lane

London's oldest theatre is also its most spectacular, with a palatial auditorium that is among the most impressive in the world. The first theatre on this site was built in 1662 on the orders of Charles II. It has been rebuilt a number of times since then, but the current auditorium incorporates many elements from as long ago as 1820. More about Theatre Royal Drury Lane
