After premiering on Broadway in 2008, Shrek The Musical has gone on to be nominated for some massive awards, and by 'massive' we mean a Grammy and eight Tony Awards.
"I saw Shrek The Musical on Broadway when it opened in 2008 and fell in love with it," Frost said in a statement.
"I was bowled over by the way audiences responded to the social issues it covers, themes like friendship, discrimination, acceptance, inclusiveness and 'don’t judge a book by its cover'. I know Australia is going to fall in love with Shrek The Musical as much as I did."
Tickets will be available from July 5 with pre-sales kicking off on July 1. You can join the official waitlist right here.
