Shrek the Musical returns to Glasgow this autumn!


Shrek the Musical® will be stomping into Glasgow this autumn as producers of the hit musical are delighted to announce additional Scotland dates due to popular demand. Following the critically acclaimed opening of the new UK and Ireland tour in Edinburgh, the larger-than-life production will be arriving at the King’s in Glasgow from Tuesday 25 September until Saturday 6 October.

Leading the cast as beloved swamp-dwelling ogre ‘Shrek’ will be Steffan Harri, having previously starred in the original UK tour of Shrek the Musical® and actor and recording artist Amelia Lily as Princess Fiona, who will perform her only Scottish date at King’s Theatre Glasgow. They will be joined by Marcus Ayton as Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick ‘Donkey’ and Samuel Holmes as pint-sized villain ‘Lord Farquaad’.

The company of fairy-tale characters will include Adam Baker, Ethan Bradshaw, Michael Carolan, Joseph Dockree, Will Hawksworth, Sarah-Louise Jones, Reece Kerridge, Thomas Lee Kidd, Amy Oxley, Jemma Revell, Lucinda Shaw, Sam Stones, Adam Taylor, Jennifer Tierney, Sophie Wallis, Francesca Williams, Laura Wilson and Kevin Yates.

Caro Newling (Co-Producer, Neal Street Productions) said: “When we saw the wonderful reception we had in Edinburgh over the Christmas season, we knew we couldn’t miss the opportunity to give Scottish audiences another chance to see Shrek and all his fairytale friends. Since Shrek the Musical’s West End debut in 2011 we have opened our doors to nearly 2 million audience members nationwide and now it’s great to be back on the road with a brand new version of this uplifting show.”

Shrek the Musical® is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek! and the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animations feature film. Originally directed in the West End by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford, the production has book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Jeanine Tesori with multi award-winning set and costume design by Tim Hatley.

Following the unprecedented success of the first ever UK and Ireland Tour, the new production will tour to 24 major cities throughout 2018 including Manchester, Sunderland, Birmingham, Aberdeen, Northampton, Sheffield, Cardiff, Stoke, Blackpool, Woking, Liverpool, Norwich, Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Bristol, Llandudno, Nottingham, Belfast, Dublin, Plymouth, Southampton and Leeds.
