The larger than life, SMASH hit musical ‘Shrek the Musical’ is coming to Drum Theatre in Dandenong.
How is an ogre like an onion? Do donkeys and dragons make good friends? Do YOU know the muffin man? Discover the answers to these questions and more as Shrek, Fiona, and company bumble, blunder, and belch their way from one twisted fairytale to another in this rowdy re-telling of the beloved animated film.
Based on the smash hit animated film series, Shrek the Musical follows the story of one very grumpy ogre (Shrek, played by Dan Bellis) who lives alone in a swamp. When the insecure and conniving Lord Farquaad (Asher Griffith-Jones) expels all the fairy tale characters from his kingdom, Shrek is forced into an epic adventure that will see him joined by an over-enthusiastic talking Donkey (Dean Di Cristo) and a not-so-by-the-book Princess Fiona (Candice Sweetman) with a secret or two up her sleeve. With a cast of 36 talented performers, Director Andrew McDougall, Choreographer Renée Malone and Vocal Director Isaac Mouskovias are very excited to be bringing this show to life at the Drum Theatre.
Perfect for children and families, and just in time for the holidays, Shrek the Musical marries the bawdy humor of the original film with spectacular musical numbers added for the Broadway production.
