Shrek The Musical Returns for the Holidays


Shrek The MusicalEveryone’s favorite green ogre is back. If you missed him and the rest of the gang, well this your chance to catch them. Shrek The Musical returns for the holidays for a very limited repeat performance from December 26, 2014 to January 4, 2015 at the Meralco Theatre. This is a perfect opportunity to have fun and laugh with friends and families, making your holiday season more merrier and Shrek-tacular!

Christmas brings magic to our world. We only see magic on fairytale stories, but Shrek The Musical puts a twist on these stories as we have come to know them. Instead of a knight riding a noble steed, the hero is Shrek, a swamp-dwelling ogre who befriends a wisecracking Donkey. And the Princess? She’s the slightly temperamental and neurotic Fiona. After Shrek rescues Fiona from a dragon-guarded tower, the two fall in love before she reveals there’s more to her than meets the eye. Other fairytale misfits join the madcap adventure in this colorful musical including a brave puppet named Pinocchio, a Gingerbread Man with an attitude and Three Blind Mice who channel their inner Dreamgirls.Shrek the Musical

Despite the twist, Shrek has captured our hearts on animation and the musical. This entertaining, family-friendly show features a terrific score including the hit song “I’m A Believer!” The songs come from Jeanine Tesori, who wrote the music, and David Lindsay-Abaire, who wrote the book and lyrics. It had a sold out performances during it’s initial run in Manila which received accolades.

Shrek the Musical also draws from a 1990 children’s book by famed New Yorker cartoonist William Steig. Like the first 2001 Shrek film, the musical stays true to Steig’s fractured fairytale vision where dragons are friendly, swamps are better than castles, and the true hero isn’t handsome or noble but a grouchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside ogre who is more or less content with himself and his life in a swamp. After the musical premiered in 2008, as the most expensive show ever produced on Broadway, it played for more than a year and earned numerous Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations. It went on to become a hit musical in London ’s West End and continues to tour the UK.

Rycharde Everley, who has played roles in AVENUE Q and SPELLING BEE, returns as Shrek and Shiela Valderama-Martinez once again plays the neurotic Princess Fiona, Nyoy Volante plays Donkey, Lorenz Martinez as Lord Farquaad, Nel Gomez plays Pinocchio, and Carla Guevara-Laforteza plays Dragon. Directed by Bobby Garcia, Shrek The Musical returns for the holidays and is the perfect production for the entire family this season! Get your tickets now to SHREK!
