NEW from Gabriel Design Theatricals! From the acclaimed Dreamworks film, to the Broadway musical, you too can bring the magic of Shrek the Musical to your theater with the help of Gabriel Design Theatricals. Casting has never been easier!
We've revised Dragon to be more streamlined, easier to operate, and easier to store! Now even small theaters can enjoy having Dragon as a member of the cast. An impressive puppet operated by just 3 puppeteers, Shrek’s Dragon is 15-foot long
with articulated wings and mouth, and lighted eyes. Though mechanically complex,
we have kept Dragon light-weight, highly portable and affordable, to allow for easy
use in any theater.
"Gingy worked out fantastic - so many people were
asking 'How'd you do that?' and that just tickled me!"
~Brian Bohrer, Director
The Gingy rental includes two forms of the 24”X20” puppet - one with separated legs for the torture scene (torture table not included); the second with legs re-attached for the later scenes (can be mounted on the included baking sheet, or puppeteered on it’s own). With articulated eyebrows and mouth, and realistic
design and finish, Gingy comes fully to life in every performance.
"The show went great, and Pinocchio's Nose was a big success!"
~ Bill Corzo, Oscar-winning makeup artist (production at ACT1, California)
Pinocchio's nose is a cable-driven, retractable piece worn as a mask under Pinocchio's wig and hat. Obscuring very little of the actor's face, the piece allows a full acting-range. The mechanism is operated
by the actor using discreet cable-control.

As Act 2 of Shrek begins Fiona sings Morning
Person to a joyful bird in its nest. As Fiona's
voice rises, the bird mimics her singing and
expands, finally "popping" in front of her eyes.
We've created that effect with repeatable ease
and control, delighting the audience even as
they blush at having laughed at a bird explode.
Shrek, the Musical, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and others
These naturalistic donkey ears are articulated by the actor, each swiveling 120 degrees to give life to the character. Versatile as well, the headpiece can be used for multiple shows including Shrek, the Musical, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, My Son Pinocchio,
