Shrek the Musical lands in Riyadh this May

All the way from the Kingdom of Far Far Away, everyone’s favourite ogre is coming to Riyadh next month… 

After a sellout run in Jeddah back in March, Shrek the Musical is coming to Riyadh this May. Based on the Oscar-winning Dreamworks film, the Broadway hit will take place at The Arena in Riyadh from Monday May 1 to Sunday May 13.

Shrek fanatics, prepare for non-stop laughing as Shrek, his noble steed Donkey, Princess Fiona, and the rest of the well-loved characters (‘do you know the muffin man?’) embark on a magical and musical adventure.

In addition to the film’s popular soundtrack including hits like I’m a Believer and Don’t Let Me Go, there will be 19 new tunes that will have you singing along all the way back to your swamp.

Dream come true? Tickets are on sale on shrekthemusicalinriyadh.com with prices at SAR150 (general) SAR250 (gold) and SAR375 (platinum). The shows take place each evening at 7.30pm.

For those who aren’t familiar with the fairytale, this hilarious family favourite tells the story of a green ogre (Shrek) whose precious swamp gets turned upside down by irritable fairytale creatures who were banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquad. In a bid to get his land back, Shrek promises to rescue Princess Fiona to be Lord Farquad’s bride.

The musical brings his epic journey to life through creative choreography, unique backdrops, and catchy tunes.

Since its launch on Broadway, there have been over 500 performances across Singapore, the UK, France, the Netherlands, China, New York, and beyond.
