Things are looking up in Duloc! Banished no longer, the misfit fairy tale creatures from the quirky and spell-binding Broadway musical, SHREK, have found their happy ending at MTI. We’re happy to welcome Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona, and their assorted wolf, elf, and gingerbread friends to the MTI family.

SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy 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.
Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone! Its clever, yet heartfelt book and lyrics by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (RABBIT HOLE) and dynamic pop-influenced score by multiple Tony Award nominee Jeanine Tesori (CAROLINE OR CHANGE, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE) create a goofy world where inner beauty doesn’t always match its packaging, and what makes you different actually helps you belong.
Fun ensemble roles, comical, yet genuine lead characters, hilarious one-liners, and songs that range from tender ballads, such as the heart-wrenching, “When Words Fail,” to rousing production numbers like “Let Your Freak Flag Fly,” make SHREK THE MUSICAL a delightful addition to any season. Our friends at shrekthemusical.com posted this monstrous rendition of “I’m a Believer,” which we hope will also make believers out of YOU:
