Shrek the Musical

Transporting its fairy-tale world from the screen to the stage, Shrek the Musical plops a lovable ogre's swamp and a beautiful princess's castle beneath the spotlights, populating both with a cast of familiar fairy-tale creatures. Amid tumult in the magical kingdom, Shrek and his sidekick Donkey agree to rescue the feisty Princess Fiona from her tower prison, where she is surrounded by lava and dutifully guarded by a dragon. On their way back to the kingdom, where Shrek is to deliver Fiona to the irksome Lord Farquaad, the ogre proves his lovability by winning the heart of the fair princess. Yet Fiona isn't quite what she seems, for when night comes, she takes on a less princess-like form.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire and renowned composer Jeanine Tesori teamed up to adapt Shrek's story of self-acceptance to the stage, creating 19 all-new songs that highlight the tale's hilarity, drama, and instructions for achieving a lime-green complexion. Pinocchio and a team of other disgruntled fairy-tale characters belt out an anthem for originality with "Freak Flag," and in a final showdown at the Cathedral of Duloc, Shrek airs his true feelings in a reprise of "Big Bright Beautiful World." There's one old stand-by, however—audiences can look forward to a rousing rendition of "I'm a Believer," carried over from one of the film's most memorable scenes. Hearts will cheer for Fiona to find her true love's first kiss, as the irreverent cast of characters escorts her and her charming ogre to a happily-ever-after finale that, for once, does not involve catapulting the villain off into the sunset.

Customer Reviews

Can't beat this deal! The ticket price even includes a beverage and popcorn. The production was great and we enjoyed it! Groupon patrons had a separate section, but that was ok because the seats were still good!

Great performance!! The Palace Theatre can put on a great show. Wish the chairs were a little roomier but it gave a very authentic feel to it
