SHREK is here in June 2022 - a regional premiere!!

From the award-winning Quarry Bank Musical Theatre Society, everything #goesgreen from 4th - 11th June 2022 - Total of 9 shows to choose from.

Extra dates have been added as this show will sell out exceptionally quickly!

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.

So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Get these dates in your dairy, and don't mis out on this "Big, Bright, Beautiful World!"
