Shrek the musical
If you’re looking for something to do, in the run-up to Father’s Day this June, that the whole family will enjoy, then how about a musical with a difference? TWODS is bringing everyone’s favourite loveable green-eared monster to The Assembly Theatre in Tunbridge Wells from 14th to 18th June. Featuring all new songs as well as cult movie anthem ‘I’m a Believer’, SHREK The Musical is an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza!
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious and spectacular musical comedy turns the world of fairy tales upside down. 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 smaller than life Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairy-tale misfits plus a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got a Shrek-tacular mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
Children will adore the Three Blind Mice, the Gingerbread Man, and the Grammy award-winning musical score of happy singalong tunes. The adults will love the cheeky, irreverent humour from the original film.
Bucket collections will take place after each performance to raise funds for Kent Young Carers, the official charity partner for SHREK.
Evening performances take place at the 7:00pm from Tuesday 14th to Saturday 18th June, with additional matinée performances on Wednesday 15th June and Saturday 18th June at 2:00pm. These earlier performance times have been introduced to make the show more accessible to families.
Tunbridge Wells Operatic and Dramatic Society (TWODS) is one of the oldest amateur societies in the country and have been performing in Tunbridge Wells for more than 130 years, providing entertainment and support for many local charities.
