The monster hit UK and Ireland Tour of Shrek The Musical is delighted to announce full casting as it enters its second triumphant year on the road. Coming direct from London, where it was seen live on stage by nearly a million people, the production has attracted huge audiences and five star reviews, ‘taking ogre’ venues up and down the country on its first ever UK and Ireland Tour.

It then continues its journey around the UK and Ireland, visiting Sunderland Empire 11-22 November 2015.

‘A perfect mixture of music, dance and performance comedy, with a sprinkling of fresh gags and slightly risqué humour to keep adults on their toes.’
