KickstArt have done themselves mighty proud with a production so crammed with heart and humour, so bristling with exuberance from a committed cast, it had me smiling often and broadly throughout… Glittering with colour, charm and quality, Shrek the Musical is a monster treat for everyone, not just the kids!Billy Suter, The Mercury
With excellent performances, delicious humour and upbeat music, Shrek the Musical is a superb production with a large cast and worth every cent of the ticket price…It’s an absolute winner!Caroline Smart, The Daily News Tonight
Shrek the Musical is big, green and fabulous…the biggest, brightest musical comedy you’re likely to see this year. Theatre goers simply cannot afford to miss this show!Estelle Sinkins, The Witness
