Todd McKenney joins the fairy-tale cast of SHREK THE MUSICAL opening at the Sydney Lyric in January.
Todd McKenney will take on the hilarious role of Lord Farquaad, the short-in-stature ruler of Duloc, alongside Ben Mingay as Shrek, Lucy Durack as Princess Fiona and Marcia Hines as the Dragon, in this lavish and fun multi-million dollar Broadway hit musical comedy.
SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favourite ogre to life on the stage.
Join Shrek, our unlikely hero, and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon. Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairy-tale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
Featuring a terrific score of 19 songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, it’s no wonder The New York Times called it ‘True Happiness’ and The Daily Mirror said it’s ‘the most fun you’ll ever have’.
SHREK THE MUSICAL, part romance, part twisted fairy-tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
