Shrek the musical

Opening at the Drury Lane theatre on the 6th of May, 2011, Shrek the Musical, stars Nigel Lindsay as Shrek, a reluctant hero with a loyal but irritating sidekick, Donkey, played by Richard Blackwood. The duo set off to rescue the lovely, if somewhat temperamental, Princess Fiona, played by Amanda Holden, from a tower that a lovelorn, fire-breathing dragon guards.

Add to that the minuscule Lord Farquaad, portrayed by Nigel Harman, a band of fairy-tale oddballs and a ginger biscuit with an axe to grind, and you've got Shrek the Musical, the not-to-be-missed new musical comedy of the year.

Shrek the Musical features a host of brand-new songs and Shrek's offbeat anthem, I'm a Believer, and this uproarious and outstanding production brings to life the much-loved characters to delight audiences with their antics. Based on the characters and story from the Oscar-winning blockbuster DreamWorks Animation film, this musical comedy, turns the fairy-tale world on its head with an irresistible combination of laughter, dancing, singing and romance, as well as a fun adventure thrown in for good measure.

Directed by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford, with choreography by Josh Prince, music by Janine Tesori, and Tim Hatley in charge of costume design, this enchanting production is bound to have adults and children alike rolling in the aisles. Rediscover the joys of Shrek and his merry mob of meddlesome misfits when you take your family to see this side-splitting musical comedy at the Drury Lane theatre. It's a treat you won't regret!

During the reign of James I, a cockpit in Catherine Street was converted into a theatre, then, in 1660, Christopher Wren designed a new theatre that was built there. After it burnt to the ground in 1672, Wren designed a bigger and more sophisticated theatre, whose opening Charles II attended in 1674. The building was demolished in 1791, and a third playhouse, which Henry Holland designed, was constructed and opened in 1794, then burnt down in 1809. Benjamin Wyatt designed the current Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which opened in 1812 and has a seating capacity of 2,205.
