Shrek the Musical

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

Described by USA Today, this “BIG FAT HIT!” will present six performances in Abu Dhabi for the very first time as part of its first ever international tour.

SHREK THE MUSICAL is based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film. This live adaptation brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey that does not keep quiet, a villain with a short temper, 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 features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Good People), music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline, or Change). SHREK THE MUSICAL is choreographed by Chris Bailey and directed by Stephen Sposito who served as Associate Director of the Broadway revival How To Succeed In Business starring Daniel Radcliff. Costumes are the Tony Award® winner designs by Tim Hatley (Private Lives, Spamalot).

This English language production is brought to you by DreamWorks Theatricals, Broadway Entertainment Group and NETworks Presentations, in association with Alchemy Project Event Management Agency with book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori.
