Following their critically acclaimed productions of Sister Act The Musical, Portrush Music Society is back – and larger than life – with the smash hit movie musical blockbuster Shrek!

Things are going to get ugly …

Prepare to be transported Far Far Away, as you join cantankerous ogre Shrek and his hilarious loyal steed Donkey when they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from her tower. It’s going to be a hard task – she happens to be closely guarded by a fire breathing, love-sick dragon!  Add the vertically challenged villain Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a ginger biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and a bit of romance.  Will cranky Shrek discover that love and happiness aren’t only true in fairytales as he ventures out of his swamp and onto our stage?

Based on the story and characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairy tales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, fast-paced musical comedy. This family-friendly show is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
