Production Review

Shrek - The Musical was another fantastic week at the Hippodrome. For the first time in our history we played to full houses every single night! Thank you to all our audiences who came to support us throughout the week.

The cast and crew had a fantastic time rehearsing and performing this popular show and the society would also like to thank everyone who helped in anyway to get this production to the stage and welcomed our audiences through the week.

If you would like to read an external view please find some reviews of the show below along with a selection of photographs from our dress rehearsal.
