“Shrek The Musical”, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film is coming to Malaysia for the very first time as part of its first ever international tour!
The show, organised by Base Entertainment Asia, is described by USA Today as a “BIG FAT HIT!”, and will be playing at Istana Budaya, Kuala Lumpur for a limited season only.
This award-winning musical will bring the well-loved characters from the animated series to life, in a hilarious and spectacular production – direct from Broadway to Kuala Lumpur.
This live adaptation of the popular animation film Shrek brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to the stage. In a far away kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey that does not keep quiet, a villain with a short temper, 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. Luckily, there’s one on hand and his name is Shrek.
With more than 60 scene changes, 60 moving lights and stage setup cost of more than USD 300,000, Malaysians can definitely anticipate a world class production, jam-packed with laughter that will have audiences believing in happily ever after at the end of the show.
