Synopsis

Shrek the Musical Jr is a one-of-a-kind, hilarious fairy tale in which curses are reversed, monsters get the girls, donkeys and dragons find love, and princesses are beautiful in all shapes and sizes. A grumpy, gruff, green ogre Shrek lives alone in his swamp. The world is fearful and mocking of him, and he is more than happy to leave the world to itself, in turn. Suddenly, his hermit existence is thrown open, when a group of homeless fairy tale characters including Pinocchio, the Big Bad Wolf, the Wicked Witch, and the Three Little Pigs, burst upon his swamp, seeking refuge from the persecution of the cruel, vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad. Shrek seeks out Farquaad, who offers him a deal. If Shrek rescues the Princess Fiona (whom Farquaad wishes to marry for her crown), then Farquaad will ensure the return of Shrek’s swamp by returning the fairy tale creatures to their homes. In a desperate attempt to regain his swamp, Shrek enters the world for the first time in his life. He travels to Princess Fiona’s prison and rescues her from a fire-breathing dragon.

Fiona is very different from what he expected a princess to be.

This is a stage musical that is sure to entertain and make audiences believe in happy endings for all.
