So well done! FUN for the kids and adults. Some of the humor was meant for the adults....went right over the kids heads, but not offensive in anyway. The sets were good, dancing and singing were great. The donkey was my favorite and amazed at the...continued

It was cute, but it was exactly like the movie so the lines weren't funny anymore.

I liked the show a lot and my daughter enjoyed it as well. I was very disappointed that the seats in the right corner were with low visibility since we watched most of the time the back of the characters. Next time I won't buy goldstar tickets if...continued

It was an incredible show! We had front row tickets. The length of the show was perfect. My nine year old loved it. The costumes, props, actors and writing are wonderful.

Production value was great! Venue was exceptional, meet & greet afterwards was a nice surprise.
My only complaint (which is not Goldstar or theater issue)...was the amount of very small children (age 2-3?) as the suggested age I believe was 5. ...continued

Excellent experience however expensive with five children and lunch. Shrek the Musical was totally excellent and the theater is perfect for a musical for children.

Our entire family loved the show. This is the Children's version, so they left out a few songs from the Broadway version. However, don't let that dissuade you. Top notch production... you will leave with a smile!

We had a great time at Shrek! It's an outstanding show that will be fun for the whole family. Time says 75 minutes, but it really was 90 minutes.
