Shrek - The Musical On Stage Christchurch & Wellington October 2022

The wait is ogre! See Broadway’s monster smash-hit production Shrek The Musical here in New Zealand.  Based on the Academy Award-winning animated film Shrek, the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre is being brought to life on stage at Christchurch’s iconic Isaac Theatre Royal then Wellington’s St James Theatre over the October school holidays.  This follows two hugely successful seasons of the show in Auckland and Hamilton during July.

This lavish multi-million-dollar musical is part romance, part twisted fairytale and all irreverent fun that 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.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with 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 has been enjoyed by audiences around the world since 2008, having toured Australia, the US, UK, Asia, Canada, South America and Scandinavia among others. Now it’s your turn New Zealand.

Shrek The Musical is produced in New Zealand by Showcase Entertainment Group in association with Pacific Entertainment and Music Theatre International (Australasia) Ltd.
