Everyone is invited to “fall in love all ogre again” with the somewhat friendly green giant.

“Our unlikely hero finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and the feisty Princess Fiona who resists her rescue,” shares the production.

“Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, 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. It’s not easy being green, but this irreverently fun musical proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre!”

If you’re “ogre” to get your tickets, you’ll have to wait until March 1st as it’ll be live on the site at 10 AM.

Get ready for an enchanting and laughter-filled experience as Shrek The Musical takes center stage in Toronto this August, promising a magical journey for all.
