SHREK Set To Create Musical Magic at Welk Resort Theatre in 2019

Get ready to be ogre-whelmed—Shrek’s in town June 8th through August 10th. Shrek The Musical will delight audiences young and old at Welk Resort Theatre in Branson with the summer production of the hilarious fairy-tale adventure.

The stage of the 2,300-seat theatre turns into a swamp with all the wonderfully-wacky residents from the Tony Award-winning animation film by DreamWorks. In turn, the story is loosely based on the 1990 fairy-tale picture book “Shrek!” by American cartoonist William Steig.  Live on the stage is the big, green, bad-tempered ogre himself, and all the other catchy creatures -- Donkey, Pinnochio, the Gingerbread Man, Lord Farquaad, Princess Fiona, and the rest of the gang. The songs, written by the prolific composer Jeanine Tesori, are new and unforgettable.

“We are so proud to be able to present a fantastic new production of Shrek the Musical,” said Susan Smith, General Manager of Welk Resort Theatre. “It’s something families will not want to miss.”

Look forward to more exciting entertainment when the theatre’s production of the award-winning Million Dollar Quartet returns Aug. 29. This blockbuster musical hit is based on a true event arranged by Sam Phillips, known as the father of rock ‘n roll. The show takes you inside the Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, for the history-making jam session with America’s greatest icons. Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins are gonna rock the stage again at Welk Resort Theatre. Million Dollar Quartet is a happy blast from the past that will get your toes tapping.
