For those who aren’t familiar with the fairytale, this hilarious family favourite tells the story of a green ogre (Shrek) whose precious swamp gets turned upside down by irritable fairytale creatures who were banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquad. In a bid to get his land back, Shrek promises to rescue Princess Fiona to be Lord Farquad’s bride.

The musical brings his epic journey to life through creative choreography, unique backdrops, and catchy tunes.

Since its launch on Broadway, there have been over 500 performances across Singapore, the UK, France, the Netherlands, China, New York, and beyond.

The musical is just one of the very many performances you don’t want to miss this year.
