St Austell Amateur Operatic Society (AOS) are excited to present their post pandemic production of ‘Shrek the Musical’ at the Keay Theatre, St Austell.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…”
And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, ‘Shrek The Musical’ is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs and a sidesplitting book, bringing all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
