About Shrek The Musical

For 6 weeks only the West End and Broadway hit, Shrek the Musical, returns to London at the Eventim Apollo Theatre from 19th July 2024, starring Strictly Come Dancing champion, Joanne Clifton.

Embark on an unforgettable journey with DreamWork’s spectacular musical, based on the much-loved Oscar winning animated film. This award-winning musical brings to life the world of Shrek live on stage in a jaw-dropping production to melt hearts of all ages.

Join Shrek on this whirlwind adventure, as he sets off on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona from the clutches of Lord Farquaad.

Enchantingly irreverent and monstrously clever, Shrek the Musical is an ogre-sized adventure not to be missed. Book your tickets to Shrek the Musical on TodayTix.

Shrek, released in 2001, revolutionised animated filmmaking and left an indelible mark on popular culture.

What to watch for

  • The character Shrek alone required over four pounds of green makeup for each performance, setting a record for the most makeup ever used on a single character in a Broadway production and can take 2 hours to put on before each show.
  • Lord Farquaad's diminutive stature was achieved by having the actor perform on his knees, creating a comically contrasting visual with the other characters.
  • The production employed impressive puppetry for the character of Dragon, bringing the massive creature to life with a combination of technology and traditional puppetry techniques.
  • The film boasts an all-star cast, including Eddie Murphy as Donkey, Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona, and John Lithgow as Lord Farquaad.
