A Musical Shrektacular

As part of a sparkling Christmas Season on Friday Night Is Music Night, another chance to welcome the greenest musical to hit the West End since Elphaba the Witch got out the wrong side of bed - it's Shrek!

Featuring the original knock-out cast from the show with its stars Nigel Lindsay, Richard Blackwood, Nigel Harman and Amanda Holden, the show celebrates the finest music from animated films old and new, so alongside numbers from Shrek, expect to hear themes from Madagascar, Prince of Egypt and Chicken Run plus much more besides.

Nigel Lindsay, Richard Blackwood, Nigel Harman and Amanda Holden share the hosting duties from London's Hackney Empire. And they're joined by the 70-piece strong BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Richard Balcombe.

Friday Night Is Music Night - A Musical Shrektacular. And remember... it's not ogre til the green guy sings!
