From the producers of Hairspray and Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Shrek the Musical has brought together a new creative team to reimagine the show which features all the classic characters from the DreamWorks animated film, plus the songs and story from David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori’s original musical.

The show follows the same story as the original film, following Shrek and Donkey on their quest of defeating the dragon and saving Princess Fiona.

The team who have joined forces to re-create the world of Shrek includes director and choreographer Nick Winston and co-director Sam Holmes who returns to the line-up having played Lord Farquaad in the previous UK tour. 

Antony Lawrence plays Shrek (Mary Poppins National Tour) and Joanne Clifton, who is best known for her time as a professional dancer on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, plays Fiona. The leading duo are joined by James Gillan as Lord Farquaad and Brandon Lee Sears as Donkey.

James Gillan most recently created the role of Tray Sophisticay in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and Brandon Lee Sears starred in both Come From Away and Motown the Musical in the West End. 

Rising star Cherece Richards (Once on This Island, Regent’s Park Theatre) is making her debut in a principal role as the Dragon.
