Get ready to let your freak flag fly as the green-tastic stage show returns – with a production touring across the UK from 12 December – continuing throughout 2018.
Opening at the Edinburgh Playhouse for the festive season, Steffan Harri will play the title role of beloved swamp-dwelling ogre Shrek. He will be joined by Call the Midwife star Laura Main as Princess Fiona.
Also joining the cast will be Marcus Ayton as Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick Donkey and Samuel Holmes as pint-sized villain Lord Farquaad. Additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
On joining the show as its loveable princess, Laura Main said: “I’ve been waiting a long time for an adventure like this to come along and now that it has I am ready to swap the surgery for the swamp in one of my favourite musicals.
“Shrek has made a Believer out of me and I can’t wait for this fairytale to take me across the country.”
Please note: Due to filming commitments Laura will be performing at selected venues throughout the tour, with full list of dates below.
The company of fairy-tale characters will include Adam Baker, Ethan Bradshaw, Michael Carolan, Joseph Dockree, Will Hawksworth, Sarah-Louise Jones, Reece Kerridge, Thomas Lee Kidd, Amy Oxley, Jemma Revell, Lucinda Shaw, Sam Stones, Adam Taylor, Jennifer Tierney, Sophie Wallis, Francesca Williams, Laura Wilson and Kevin Yates.
