Shrek swaps the swamp for the desert!
Tuacahn Amphitheatre presents an open-air production of the hilariously funny musical adaptation of Shrek! Based directly on the 2001 Academy Award-winning Dreamworks animated movie, and William Steig's book, we join the ogre Shrek on his journey from the swamp to heroism with an array of larger than life (mostly) characters, including his sidekick Donkey, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad and a chorus of everybody's favorite fairytale creatures.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, 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. Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, USA Today proclaims SHREK THE MUSICAL, “ALTOGETHER IRRESISTIBLE. A BIG FAT HIT!”
