Shrek the musical is marching off in to the sunset on the 24th February 2013 as the show in London ends this remarkable adventure.
The show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is ending in style with some amazing ticket offers with ticket prices slashed to just £25, so hurry whilst stocks last as these tickets are selling like hot ginger bread men, and they are only available on selected dates until the 7th February.
So 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, where she is 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 the must-see musical comedy Shrek the musical.
The show features all new songs as well as the cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, Shrek the musical brings the well loved characters to life, in a hilarious and spectacular production based on the story and characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film. The world of fairytales is turned upside down in an all singing, all dancing, irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance.
Carley Stenson stars as Princess Fiona straight from playing the leading role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde at the Savoy theatre. Prior to this, Carley played regular Steph Cunningham in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks for over ten years.
Dean Chisnall stars as Shrek, he was recently in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies at the Adelphi theatre and also in La Cage aux Folles at the Playhouse theatre.
Neil McDermott stars as Lord Farquaad. His theatre credits include starring in Follies at the London Palladium and The Sound of Music also at the London Palladium. Neil appeared as Ryan Malloy in BBC’s Eastenders and as Ralph Ellis in T.V.’s The Royal.
Comedian Richard Blackwood is Donkey.
Shrek is one of those unique shows that is suitable for both adults and children alike and plays to audiences on two levels with everyone enjoying their brand of humour. The songs are great and the production values superb.
Shrek the musical is making way from the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the introduction of a musical adaptation of another classic film, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, opening at the end of February 2013, tickets are now on sale.
Why not treat yourself to both shows?
