Matcham Auditorium
Shrek the Musical

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek the Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring amazing songs and a side splitting script.

Shrek the Musical brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

‘Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…’

And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
Shrek the Musical presents a treasure trove of excitement, brilliant sets, life size puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek the Musical proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Theatre Royal Wakefield is for everyone in the district. That’s why we are proud to present work from our local community, societies and groups. Book to see local talent on stage.
