Shrek must go on: MAODS release #ImABeliever video as show is rescheduled

MOSSLEY Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society might not be able to take to the stage at the moment – but they are still making sure to keep their audiences entertained.

Their production of Shrek – The Musical was due to raise the roof at The George Lawton Hall on April 27 – May 2 but has been rescheduled to November because of the coronavirus outbreak.

MAODS cast and team

However, the cast have been getting creative at home instead to make a video to amuse their fans as well as show support and thanks to key workers.

MAODS said: “All the cast have been missing each other a lot and missing entertaining our amazing audiences.

“Shrek is a story about unlikely heroes and coming together to do good, so we set ourselves a challenge over the past few days to bring us all together virtually and spread some positivity, hope and thanks to our amazing NHS heroes.

“Everyone has filmed a tiny bit of video at home and we’ve stitched them together to make a video which shows a Shrek script being passed through the cast, creative team and committee, (in silly ways) and then we all show our love.”

You can see the#ImABeliever video on their Facebook page from 7pm on Friday, May 1.

Shrek – The Musical will now be performed on November 30 to December 5. Existing tickets will be valid for the same seat on the same day of the week.

All remaining tickets (not many left) are available at £16.50 from

Based on the story and characters from the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film, this hilarious production turns the world of fairy-tales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, must-see musical comedy.
Join unlikely hero Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon.

Add the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairy-tale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude and you’ve got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
