You better believe it, on Tuesday May 31 the cast of SHREK THE MUSICAL®, including Amanda Holden as Princess Fiona, will perform live on ITV's Britain's Got Talent.
In a Britain's Got Talent first, judge Amanda Holden will swap the safety of the judging panel for the stage, joining her SHREK THE MUSICAL® co-stars for a live performance of classic hit, I'm a Believer.
Amanda said: "I think one of the most important things when you‘re on a show like Britain's Got Talent and judging other people, is to be willing to stand on the stage and put your own self up for judgment. Next Tuesday, the audience along with my TV colleagues Simon, Michael and the Hoff will be sitting in judgment of me. I‘m just praying they don‘t use their buzzers!"
SHREK THE MUSICAL® is currently previewing at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and officially opens on June 14, 2011. A Royal Gala performance of SHREK THE MUSICAL® will be held June 8, 2011 in aid of The Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts.
Produced by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions, SHREK THE MUSICAL® is based on the story and characters from William Steig's book Shrek! and the Oscar®-winning original Dreamworks Animation feature film Shrek, the first chapter in the series of irreverent fairy tales.
Tickets for the new stage musical are on sale for performances until February 19, 2012.
Owing to the live performance on Britain's Got Talent, the 7.30pm performance of SHREK THE MUSICAL® on Monday June 6 will be cancelled.
