Shrek The Musical set to take ‘ogre’ Milton Keynes

Date Posted:04/08/2015

Shrek Milton KeynesBased on the award-winning DreamWorks animation film, Shrek The Musical is this year’s must-see show for all the family - and when we say ‘must-see’ you really MUST see it - coming to MK Theatre 18 August to 6 September!

Let’s face it, Shrek is an unlikely looking hero but with his loyal (if hugely irritating) steed Donkey, he embarks on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if a little temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon.

Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad and a gang of fairytale misfits, and you’ve got an all-singing, all-dancing, all-gloriously funny spectacular GIANT of a hit show!

The company stars Dean Chisnall as the swamp-dwelling Shrek, the role he previously played in the West End. Bronté Barbé is damsel in distress Princess Fiona. Idriss Kargbo is Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick Donkey and Gerard Carey is pint-sized villain Lord Farquaad.

Nigel Harman (well-known, well-loved and consistently well out of order playing a series of bad boys in Eastenders, Downton Abbey and the Sky Living series, Mount Pleasant) has directed the tour. Having played Lord Farquaad in the West End, Nigel came to the role of director knowing exactly how entertaining the show is for both adults and children and determined to make it even more of a monster of a hit. And when you’ve got a full line-up of fairy-tale characters at your disposal, how can you not have fun?

So, would you please give a big welcome to the Three Little Pigs, Pinocchio, Three Blind Mice (in stockings and carrying white sticks) some tap dancing rats, a large, low flying dragon, a tortured gingerbread man and, of course, a cross-dressing wolf!  

Featuring a great score of all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, Shrek The Musical is making Milton Keynes the biggest, brightest, most beautiful place to be this summer!
