From the producers of Little Shop of Horrors, Cabaret and more recently Sweeney Todd, Kickstart now brings Jozi audiences the musical stage adaptation of DreamWork’s global movie phenomenon to life in the hit Broadway production – Shrek The Musical!

That’s right, get ready for the DreamWorks Theatrical fairy tale, where the Prince isn't charming, the Princess is a wreck, there's a Donkey with attitude, and the only hope is an ogre named Shrek!

*****SHREK-TACULAR***** - Sunday Telegraph

*****A BRILLIANT HIT SHOW. TREMENDOUS***** - Daily Express

The talented local 28-strong cast will be bringing these instantly recognizable characters to life in this fabulous, fun, charming and hugely funny musical.

Shrek the Musical is directed by Steven Stead, designed by Greg King, choreographed by Janine Bennewith, lighting by Tina le Roux with musical direction by Rowan Bakker. It is based on the 2001 DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture Shrek! and the book by William Steig. The musical adaptation has book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori.

Shrek the Musical has become a global phenomenon with productions staged internationally including on the WestEnd and Broadway. With an enormous cast, a fabulous score; speedy set changes; extravagant costumes, prosthetics and make-up – this is quite possibly one of the most challenging and elaborate production staged by multi-award winning producers, KickstArt. It promises to be quite extraordinary, deliciously funny and a joyous romp for the whole family! 

In the recent 2015 Awards, Shrek received two further awards; for best Costume Design (Greg King) and Best Family Friendly Entertainment.

And now it’s Jozi’s turn to enjoy this Shrektacular theatre production that’s been turbo charged as it brings a favourite movie to life on stage!

There is no better quality entertainment to be enjoyed in the winter holidays that’s ideal for everyone, not just the kids.

The show runs for 2 hours 30 minutes including a 20-minute interval.
