‘A wise-cracking monster of a show’
 The Herald, Scotland Amelia Lily joins the star cast with Steffan Harri as the beloved swamp-dwelling ogre ‘Shrek’, Marcus Ayton as Shrek’s wisecracking sidekick ‘Donkey’ and Samuel Holmes as pint-sized villain ‘Lord Farquaad’.  The company of fairy-tale characters includes Adam Baker, Ethan Bradshaw, Michael Carolan, Joseph Dockree, Will Hawksworth, Sarah-Louise Jones, Reece Kerridge, Thomas Lee Kidd, Amy Oxley, Jemma Revell, Lucinda Shaw, Sam Stones, Adam Taylor, Jennifer Tierney, Sophie Wallis, Francesca Williams, Laura Wilson and Kevin Yates.  “OGRE the top and monstrously funny, Shrek The Musical is laugh-a-minute family fun.”
 Birmingham Express and Star Amelia Lily first rose to fame on The X Factor, finishing third on the eighth series in 2011. Her debut single ‘You Bring Me Joy’ reached number two on the UK Singles Chart. Theatre credits include the Narrator in Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (UK Tour), Whatsername in the West End premiere of Green Day's hit punk rock musical American Idiot (Arts Theatre & UK Tour) and Shout! (Winter Gardens Blackpool). Most recently Amelia was runner up in the 2017 edition of Celebrity Big Brother. Following the unprecedented success of the first ever UK and Ireland Tour, a brand new production of the hit Broadway and West End musical opened in Edinburgh for Christmas 2017 to a fantastic critical and public response and is now touring to major cities throughout 2018 including Stoke, Blackpool, Woking, Liverpool, Norwich, Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Bristol, Llandudno, Nottingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Plymouth, Southampton and Leeds. “A perfect adaptation”
 Sheffield Telegraph Nigel Harman returns as director, having made his directorial debut on the first ever tour. Since then Nigel has gone on to direct Lunch & The Bow of Ulysses (Trafalgar Studios) and, most recently, Kelsey Grammer in Big Fish The Musical (The Other Palace). Best known for his stage and television work, Nigel originated the role of Lord Farquaad in the West End, winning the Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical.  Join our unlikely hero Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK THE MUSICAL® brings over 100 much-loved fairytale characters, plus a 14-foot dragon, to life in an all-singing, alldancing extravaganza.
 “A colourful, fun-packed family show with a great message for kids, I can’t recommend Shrek The Musical highly enough”
 Northampton Chronicle
