SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film is coming to Malaysia for the very first time as part of its first ever international tour. As described by USA Today, this “BIG FAT HIT!” will be playing at Istana Budaya, Kuala Lumpur for a limited season only. The show, organized by Base Entertainment Asia, is scheduled to open on June 2nd 2016 and runs through till June 5th 2016. Tickets go on sale today and are available at www.ticketcharge.com.my.
“Our aim is to bring world class, family entertainment shows to the Malaysian public,” said the CEO of Base Entertainment Asia, Chantal Prud’homme. “This award-winning musical will bring the well-loved characters from the animated series to life, in a hilarious and spectacular production – direct from Broadway to Kuala Lumpur. With more than 60 scene changes, 60 moving lights and stage setup cost of more than USD 300,000, Malaysians can definitely anticipate a world class production, jam-packed with laughter that will have audiences believing in happily ever after at the end of the show.”
This live adaptation of the popular animation film Shrek brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to the stage. In a far away kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey that does not keep quiet, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand and his name is Shrek.
“We are thrilled that SHREK THE MUSICAL will be performed in places it’s never been before,” said DreamWorks Theatricals, “and for families in Singapore and from around the region to experience their favorite ogre and fairy tale creatures live on stage”.
SHREK THE MUSICAL features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Good People), music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline, or Change). SHREK THE MUSICAL is choreographed by Chris Bailey and directed by Stephen Sposito who served as Associate Director of the Broadway revival How to Succeed in Business starring Daniel Radcliff. Costumes are the Tony Award® winner designs by Tim Hatley (Private Lives, Spamalot).
This production of SHREK THE MUSICAL is produced by Broadway Entertainment Group FZ LLC and NETworks Presentations, LLC and presented by BASE Entertainment Asia.
