The Marlowe Theatre to Welcome SHREK THE MUSICAL, Feb 2015

The larger-than-life musical will be at The Marlowe Theatre in February 2015 on its first tour of the UK, and tickets go on sale today (Friday).

Coming direct from London, where it was seen live on stage by nearly one million people, this production will be directed by Nigel Harman, who starred as Lord Farquaad in the West End show and who won the 2012 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical.

Shrek The Musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig's book Shrek! and the Oscar-winning Dreamworks Animations feature film.

Tour producers Caro Newling, Neal Street Productions, and Nick Salmon, Playful Productions, said: "We are very excited to bring Shrek The Musical to The Marlowe Theatre as part of our tour of the best venues across the UK and Ireland.

"Many years of fun with some of the best talents working in theatre today have gone into its making and as a result, it has thrilled audiences all over the world with its boundless enthusiasm and fun - we know that the people of Kent will take Shrek to their hearts, just as we did at Drury Lane!"

Casting for the tour is to be announced.

Shrek The Musical is at The Marlowe Theatre from Wednesday 11 February to Sunday 1 March 2015. For times and ticket prices, call the Box Office on 01227 787787 or go to
