Irreverently fun for the whole family, SHREK THE MUSICAL proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.  Based on the popular DreamWorks animated film, SHREK THE MUSICAL is a Tony Award-winning fairytale adventure with all the beloved characters from the film brought to life on stage. “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.

Derby Dinner’s production was directed by Lee Buckholz with musical direction by Scott Bradley and choreography by Heather Paige Folsom.  The music for SHREK THE MUSICAL was written by Jeanine Tesori with the book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. The Derby Dinner cast includes Bobby Conte as Shrek, Cami Glauser as Fiona, Blake Graham as Lord Farquaad, Andrew Coleman as Donkey, and a large ensemble.

SHREK THE MUSICAL features a lively score that includes songs such as “Freak Flag”, “I Know It’s Today”, “Make A Move”, and “Morning Person”.  This dazzling stage spectacle is filled with plenty of romance and twisted fairytale fun for everyone!
