The UK and Ireland tour of Shrek the Musical will take the production to Aberdeen on January 21, 2015.

His Majesty’s Theatre will be the first Scottish stop for the show.

Coming direct from London, Shrek the Musical will star Dean Chisnall as the beloved swamp-dwelling ogre, Faye Brookes as Princess Fiona, Idriss Kargbo as Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick Donkey and Gerard Carey as pint-sized villain Lord Farquaad.

Shrek the Musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek! and the Academy Award-winning DreamWorks Animations feature film.

The show opened on Broadway in 2008 before touring to nearly 150 cities in the USA and Canada, and travelling across the world.

Shrek the Musical will be staged at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen for three weeks from January 21, and tickets are available online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
