John Cooper Studio Theatre, 41 Monkgate, York
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that's anything but Grimm. Forget the Disney princesses you think you know.
After multiple sold-out runs in America, these royal renegades toss off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical from New York City to Old York City for its UK premiere – fairy tales will never be the same!
Disenchanted! was nominated for a 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and a 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical.
Director Robert Readman has assembled a cracking cast to play the sassy princesses who have a bone to pick with the way they've been portayed.
Katie Melia (last seen with Pick Me Up as Alice in The Addams Family) is Snow White, Alexa Chaplin (Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme in Assassins) is Cinderella, Victoria Lightfoot (Princess Elizabeth in
Betty Blue Eyes) is Sleeping Beauty, and Hayley Bamford (Morticia in The Addams Family and Mary Lou Sokolov in Buddy) is Pocahontas and Rapunzel.
Jess Gardham (Marlena Madison in Buddy) plays the Princess who kissed the Frog, Maren Fagerås Nævdal (Johanna in Sweeney Todd and Fantine in Les Miserables) is the Little Mermaid, Maya Bartley O'Dea (Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables and Rachel Crabbe in One Man, Two Guvnors) is Mulan, Maya Tether (Dolly in One Man, Two Guvnors) is the Princess Who Kissed a Frog, and Elanor Dunn (Betty's creator in Betty Blue Eyes) plays Belle.
