SHREK the Musical

Book and Lyrics by DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE  |  Music by JEANINE TESOR

The greatest fairy tale never told comes to life in Shrek the Musical, the award-winning Broadway musical adventure based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig.

A reclusive ogre finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered wannabe king, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other classic fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the makings of a delightfully dysfunctional road trip. Featuring elaborate sets, high-energy dance numbers, plenty of laughs, and a cast of more than 50 talented Bay Area performers, Shrek the Musical is ogre-sized fun for the whole family!

Seats are sold in 2 and 4-person blocks to allow for distancing between patrons. Masks are required to be worn at all times in the theater regardless of vaccination status.
