Success for YET ANOTHER of our 2012 “Musical Theatre” finalist.
Steffan Harri is Shrek in SHREK THE MUSICAL on Tour
SHREK THE MUSICAL recently announced the casting for the major nationwide tour.
Following the unprecedented success of the first UK and Ireland tour, the original production team reunites to bring the hit musical to a swamp near you. Opening at Edinburgh Playhouse for the festive season this year from 12 December, the production will then tour throughout the country in 2018.
Leading the cast as beloved swamp-dwelling ogre 'Shrek' will be Steffan Harri, having previously starred in the original UK tour of SHREK THE MUSICAL, covering the role of Lord Farquaad.
Steffan's other West End theatre credits include Les Miserables (Queen's Theatre), Spamalot (Playhouse Theatre) and Children of Eden (Prince of Wales Theatre).
Steffan also played Lyn in Welsh language soap opera Rownd a Rownd.
Choir followers will recognise Steffan from our 2012 Musical Theatre Competition where he was one of the five finalists. The picture below shows (L-R) Michael Rees (Winner), Robert Quibell, Bronté Barbé, Georgia Warsama and Steffan Harri Jones at the 2012 Final at the Taliesin Arts Centre.
