Dreaming of a green Christmas

Everyone's favourite ogre will make a special small-screen appearance this Christmas, in the television special Shrek The Halls.

Set on Christmas Eve, Shrek finds himself accosted by Donkey, Puss In Boots and the Gingerbread Man, who try to disrupt Shrek's newfound domestic bliss.

Directed by Gary Trousdale, the programme sees all of Shrek's Hollywood voices reprise their animated roles, including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas.

The half-hour programme premiered in America last month to an audience of more than 21 million viewers.

Shrek the Halls will screen on TV2 on Sunday 23, at 7pm, with a repeat on Christmas Day at 6.30pm.

And speaking of the kids, High School Musical has been performed on the big screen, on TV, on stage, and now it's set to be played out on the ice in New Zealand at Vector Arena, from May 29 to June 2.

One imagines that because it's performed on ice, and ice skating boots have very sharp blades, that it would be even more important for the performers to "getcha head in the game" and keep it there.

Plus, basketball on ice should be interesting.

Tickets to the show are on sale now from Ticketmaster.
