[invite] Opening Gala Night of SHREK THE MUSICAL

If you are a fan of the movie, 'SHREK', then you are in for a treat, as 'SHREK THE MUSICAL', a theatrical show that is based on the same Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation Film, is now performing 'LIVE' for the first time in Singapore at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands. The show will be on from the 8th June 2016 for a limited season.

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.

I love the fart joke segment between Princess Fiona and Shrek as well as the tap dance by Fiona and the rats.

SHREK THE MUSICAL is an amiable and well-crafted show that fills up the gap in the family friendly audience market, but unfortunately, the only grouse I had with the play overall was the lack of a memorable tune. The extras of the show put on a whole new spin of the musical, without deviating or taking away anything from the original show!

DENOTES FOR PARENTS: This musical lasts for more than 2 hours, and young children may get fidgety midway through the show!

Thanks Base Entertainment for the invite as it was a great experience to see my favorite ogre and fairy tale creatures live on stage. I love the moral of the story as it reminds us not to judge the appearance of a person, as what really counts is what's on the inside of a person, and that anybody can find true love in this imperfect world!

SHREK THE MUSICAL is a mixture of Romance and Comedy genre that will be enjoyed by both adults and children.
