The popular Dreamworks animation Shrek is to be brought to life on stage at Milton Keynes Theatre.

Shrek The Musical opens next month with a host of new songs, as well as I’m a Believer from the film.

The characters are all brought to life in this family show as the story is told of how Shrek and Donkey set out on a quest to rescue the beautiful but temperamental Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, lovestruck dragon.

The show comes direct from London where it was seen by nearly a million people during its run.

It will star Dean Chisnall as Shrek, the role he previously played in the West End.

Faye Brookes will play Princess Fiona and Idriss Kargbo will play Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick Donkey.

Tickets are on sale now, and are available from the Milton Keynes Theatre box office, call 0844 871 7652 or visit
