Shrek the Musical – COVID-19 announcement

17 March 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent government advice, Hull New Theatre have confirmed all performances in the next three months are cancelled.  We can confirm that Shrek the Musical is one of these shows

We will be working with Hull New Theatre to explore options to bring the show to the stage in the future and ask you to look out for details in relation to refunds or transfers. Please allow the staff at the New Theatre to work through the shows preceding our slot and look out for more updates when we are in a position to do so as soon as possible.

Our cast and crew have been working hard on this show for several months and are devastated by this news but also respect the reasons behind it.

Hessle Theatre Company will look forward to welcoming you to a future performance by our talented team with Urinetown at Hull Truck Theatre and Panto at Hessle Town Hall scheduled for the later this year.

Thank you to everyone for their support and we hope to have you in our swamp another time.

Stay safe
