DISENCHANTED!

DISENCHANTED!

DISENCHANTED! is the new musical comedy satire that proves happily ever after can be a royal pain! The original fairytale princesses are none too happy with the exploitation they’ve suffered through today’s films, books and dolls. Snow White and her angry band of storybook friends are storming the castle in order to take their lives back. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan, the Little Mermaid, Pocahontas and more unite!

INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES. RECOMMENDED FOR 16+. For more information, please visit DisenchantedMusical.com.

Among the six outspoken actresses in DISENCHANTED! are Michelle Knight as Snow White, Breanne Pickering as Cinderella and Lulu Picart as Hua Mulan/Pocahontas, each of whom received rave audience and critical reviews during the recent Abbey Theatre production in Orlando. St. Petersburg’s Becca McCoy, acclaimed for her role in Menopause The Musical, is stepping into the role of Sleeping Beauty. Making her Straz Center debut as Belle/The Little Mermaid is NYC’s Ashley Rubin.
