Everyone’s favourite green ogre, Shrek the Musical arrives to Edinburgh just in time for Christmas from Tuesday 12th December 2017 until Sunday 7th January 2018 at Edinburgh Playhouse! We are turning green with excitement here at The Scotsman… the show is not to be missed.
Based on the story and characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, must-see musical comedy.
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 vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
Shrek the Musical, which opened in the West End in 2011 and subsequently toured, will once again be directed by Nigel Harman, who directed the first UK tour of the show.
