The Unlikeliest of Fairy Tales Comes to the Greenville Stage with Shrek The Musical

Everyone’s favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning smash-hit film. The Tony-award winning 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.

Join Shrek, our unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!

Shrek the Musical features music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. It is based on the 2001 DreamWorks Animation's film Shrek and William Steig's 1990 book Shrek.

Shrek the Musical will run from September 8 to September 23. This performance is best enjoyed by audience members aged 4 and up. Estimated run time is 75 minutes. Tickets are available for purchase online or at the theatre box office.
