Sickness Hits the Shrek Tour Cast

Get well soon guys!

You may have already heard on Twitter or Facebook that todays 11am Shrek Tour performance at Her Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen was cancelled due to cast sickness.

There have been more viruses around this year than I can ever remember and with an incredibly tiring schedule and sub zero temperatures in Aberdeen for the past 3 weeks, it's maybe a miracle this hasn't happened before.

Shrek the Musical is a spectacular high energy show in which the cast have to sing, dance and act for over two and a half hours live on stage, making it impossible to perform if you're feeling under the weather.

It's not like an office job where you're sitting in a comfy chair and can cough and sneeze your way through the day, writing notes instead of speaking if you've lost your voice.

Massive credit to the cast, who with the help of modern medicine have somehow managed to make sure todays 3pm show went ahead as planned.

I'm not sure whether Faye is one of those struck down with the winter virus but I'd like to wish any cast member affected a very speedy recovery.
