Press Release

Coming to a swamp in Branson! The Welk Resort Theatre is proud to announce the all-new production of Shrek The Musical, opening June 8, 2019 and running through August 10, 2019. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a side-splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Shrek and all of his friends from the film will come to life on stage and bring all of the hilarious fun, daring adventure and heart-warming feeling that only an ogre, his wisecracking donkey and a cast of fairy tale misfits can bring. It’s a one-of-a-kind musical experience that the whole family will love.

“We are so proud to be able to present a fantastic new production of Shrek The Musical this summer,” says Susan Smith, General Manager of The Welk Resort. “We’ve had such a great experience presenting musical theatre in Branson for the past four years with our production of Million Dollar Quartet, that we’ve decided to introduce a musical production we feel the whole family will enjoy. We can’t wait for our guests to experience all of the same laughter and fun from the movie “Shrek”, live on stage. It’s going to be something families will not want to miss!”

Shrek The Musical runs June 8 through August 10, 2019. Tickets will go on sale soon and will be available by phone at 800-505-9355 or online at
