Shrek – The Musical

27 May @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Following their 2019 production of ‘Mack and Mabel’ the multiple-award winning Carlton Operatic Society will be back at the Theatre Royal Nottingham with the larger than life blockbuster ‘Shrek – The Musical’!

Based on the story and characters from the Oscar®™ winning DreamWorks Animation Film, this hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing must-see musical comedy.

Join Shrek 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!
