Shrek The Musical

shrek

London’s The Grand Theatre is known for putting on sensational holiday show’s every year. Last year’s production of Elf will be hard to top, but they sure are trying by taking on the beloved story of Shrek.

Shrek is based on the 2001 animated film. It tells the tale of a grouchy ogre, his sidekick Donkey, and a cast of hilarious fairy tale characters including a princess, a dragon, a gingerbread man, and, of course, a few bad guys along the way. Your family will fall in love with the musical version of the story they know so well.

Shrek The Musical opens this Wednesday, November 19 and runs until December 28. There are still tickets available HERE or through the Grand Theatre box office. They are selling out though, so don’t wait until too late to purchase yours. Ticket prices range from $29.95 to $79.10.

The Grand Theatre recommends the musical for children 8 and up, based on the length of the play (2.5 hours), but if your children will be okay with sitting for that long, they are welcome.

Are you a Children’s Museum member? You can get tickets to the show this coming Friday, November 21 for 50% off! Email kate@londonchildrensmuseum.ca for the promo code. Do it quickly! There aren’t many tickets left.
