Tickets for this extra week are now on sale – don't miss out!

Don’t miss the Broadway smash hit Shrek The Musical at QPAC for a strictly limited season!

Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to life on stage. This lavish multi-million dollar musical stars the ultimate fairy tale cast with Ben Mingay as Shrek, Lucy Durack as Princess Fiona, Todd McKenney as Lord Farquaad, special guest appearance by Marcia Hines as The Dragon and Nat Jobe as Donkey.

Join Shrek, our unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon. Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!

Featuring a terrific score of 19 songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, it’s no wonder The New York Times called it “true happiness” and The Daily Mirror said it’s “the most fun you’ll ever have”.

Shrek The Musical, part romance, part twisted fairy tale, and all irreverent fun for everyone!
