    The musical adaptation of Shrek will now end its London West End run on 24 February 2013. Co-directed by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford, Shrek currently plays at London's Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The musical, featuring a score by Jeanine Tesori and book by David Lindsay-Abaire, plans to tour the U.K. after closing, and will make way for Sam Mendes’ new production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    Based on William Steig’s book and the subsequent Academy Award-winning DreamWorks film, Shrek the Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who embarks on an adventure to save the beautiful Princess Fiona. Accompanied by a wise-cracking donkey, Shrek encounters a land of fairytale creatures as he battles the vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad.

    The West End production of Shrek the Musical opened on 7 June 2011 after a successful run on Broadway. The show was nominated for four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical. 
    There have been more than 400 performances in the West End and it has been seen by more than 600,000 people since its first preview performance on 6 May 2011.
