Shrek the Musical JR
Music  by Jeanine Tesori, Book & Lyrics by David Linsay-Abaire
Friday 26th-Saturday 27th May 2023│ Esher Theatre, Community Walk, Surrey, KT10 9RA

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.  It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. 

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

'Shrek the Musical JR' is being performed as part of our Esher Junior and Senior Weekly Theatre Academy classes on a Monday and Surbiton Junior class on a Thursday. You can find out how to join the cast by clicking here.
