In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who’ve been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn’t be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way.
Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, ‘Shrek JR’. is an irreverently fun show for the whole family. Imaginative sets, costumes and familiar characters that prove that beauty is in the eye of the ogre, “Shrek Jr.” is an energetic, heartwarming and hilarious show that you won’t want to miss.
