Shrek the Musical

Shrek: The Musical will be arriving at Manchester Opera House next summer, and at Blackpool Opera House December 12–30 later that year.

The Manchester leg of the tour runs August 1–12 and will re-imagine this classic story for a new audience.

All the characters from the animated film will be back to paint the town green, accompanied by the songs and story from David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori’s original musical.

Having played Lord Farquaad in the previous UK tour, Sam Holmes (Club Tropicana the Musical) returns to the swamp to co-direct.
