SHREK THE MUSICAL LogoThe hit show, Shrek The Musical, will return this year for a UK and Ireland tour, playing at the Liverpool Empire from Wednesday 25th November to Sunday 6th December 2015. TICKETS on sale soon

Hailed by critics and loved by audiences of all ages, Shrek The Musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek! and the award-winning DreamWorks Animation film of the same name.

Coming direct from London where it was seen by nearly a million people, this UK and Ireland tour show will be directed by Nigel Harman who played Lord Farquaad in the West End production and won the 2012 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical for his portrayal.

When talking about the upcoming production, Nigel Harman said, “I am delighted to be returning to Shrek as its director. This show is very special to me with its dizzying blend of great characters, a hilarious script and sublime music. This production is visually stunning, and the story has the magic ingredient of moving at great pace while still being surprisingly intimate. In short, there was no way I was going to say no to the challenge of realising the production for the UK and Ireland.”

Casting for Shrek The Musical will be announced in due course. Tickets for the show will go on presale to ATG Theatre Card members on Monday 19th January 2015. Tickets go on general sale on Thursday 22th January 2015.
