DreamWorks Theatricals, Broadway Entertainment Group and NETworks Presentations have announced that the production of Shrek The Musical is coming to Macao for the first time as part of its first international tour. Supported by The Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao SAR Government, the English-language production will be playing at The Venetian Theatre at The Venetian Macao for 21 performances, from July 22 to August 7, 2016 and follows other Broadway musicals that Sands China has brought to Macao.
“We are thrilled that Shrek The Musical will be performed in places it has never been before and for families all over the world to experience their favourite ogre and fairy tale creatures live on stage,” said DreamWorks Theatricals.
“We are excited to bring this musical to Macao, as part of our entertainment strategy to bring international shows to the region. It reaffirms our commitment to offer entertainment for all ages and this show will appeal to both adults and children alike. It also complements our existing long-term partnership with DreamWorks at Sands Cotai Central where guests can enjoy a Shrekfast character breakfast and watch the DreamWorks characters in the All-Star parade; and now Shrek The Musical offers the complete Shrek experience,” said Dave Horton, global chief marketing officer, Las Vegas Sands Corp and Sands China.
Shrek The Musical features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori. It is choreographed by Chris Bailey and directed by Stephen Sposito.
