Shrek the Musical is based on the well known animated adventure/ hilarious fairy tale in which curses are lifted, monsters get the princess and donkeys and dragons find love. Grumpy green ogre Shrek lives alone in his swamp, just the way he likes it. The world fears him, and he is more than happy to leave the outside world jus there, OUTSIDE. Suddenly, his hermit existence is thrown open, when a talking Donkey and a group of homeless fairy tale characters — Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Little Pigs, and more — get dumped in his swamp, by the cruel, vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad. Shrek seeks out Farquaad, who offers him a deal: if Shrek can rescue the Princess Fiona (with whom Farquaad has fallen in love via his magic mirror!), then Farquaad will ensure the return of Shrek's swamp by removing the fairy tale creatures. In a desperate attempt to regain his swamp's hermetic piece, Shrek enters the world for the first time in his life. He travels to Princess Fiona's prison, rescues her from a fire-breathing dragon, and then accidentally gets to know the princess as he tries to bring her back to evil Farquaad. To ogre's delight? Annoyance?, Fiona is not what he expected a princess to be. She may even provoke a new feeling for Shrek? Love! With high energy dance numbers, and lots of laughs, Shrek the Musical is sure to make audiences believers of happy endings for all.
