Shrek Makes a Believer Out of Richmond!”

Broadway World

“Believe the hype!
Shrek truly has something for everyone”

Richmond Times-Dispatch

“It’s a Big, Bright, Beautiful Show!”

Richmond Family Magazine

“An Absolute Delight!”


“Big, splashy fun!”

STYLE Weekly

“Bubbles over with laughter and delight!”

“Crammed with creativity, energy and tons of fun!”


Come along on an irreverent musical romp based on the Academy Award-winning film. We’ve got a hero who’s green and stinky, a donkey who never shuts up, and a princess who puts the i in feisty. Richmond talents Jason Marks and Aly Wepplo (whom we loved in Seussical!) bring the regional premiere of Shrek to life, as our favorite swampland ogre saves Princess Fiona and wins her love. This musical extravaganza will blow your socks off.
