Shrek The Musical is coming to The Belgrade next month

A marvellous fairytale, with a thrilling quest and a happily-ever-after ending, in theatre!


Shrek is landing on the streets of Coventry next month in an all-singing, all-dancing, must-see musical comedy at The Belgrade Theatre.

Based on the story and characters from the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairytales upside down.

Join Shrek, the unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon.

Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!

The multi award-winning Coventry Musical Theatre Society are proud to bring this spectacular show to the Belgrade Theatre. Following their highly successful productions of Annie, Monty Python’s Spamalot and 42nd Street, they are excited to return with the Coventry Premier of Shrek.

Originally produced on Broadway by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions, this amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).

The show runs for about 2 hours and 30 minutes, including an interval.

Tickets are available here for dates between 23 – 26 May.
