DISENCHANTED! Returns to BDT Stage January 11
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the new musical comedy that's anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. After selling out venues nationwide, including BDT Stage in 2017, and nominations for 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and a 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical, these royal renegades are tossing off tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical back to Boulder! Fairy tales will never be the same! DISENCHANTED! begins preview performances January 11, and plays at BDT Stage through March 31, 2019.
The "princess posse" returns with Jessica Hindsley as Snow White; Tracy Warren as Cinderella; Alicia K. Meyers as The Little Mermaid/Belle; Marijune Scott as Hua Mulan/Pocahontas; Annie Dwyer as Sleeping Beauty; and Anna High as The Princess Who Kissed the Frog. Direction for BDT Stage by Alicia K. Meyers. Choreography by Alicia K. Meyers and Matthew D. Peters.
Book, music and lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino. A former history teacher, Giacino conceived the idea of DISENCHANTED! while teaching his class about the colonial settlement at Jamestown, VA. He couldn't help but wonder: What would the 'real' Pocahontas - a circa 1616, rough-and-tumble 10-year- old Powhatan girl - think of the fringed deer-pelt miniskirt and long, flowing hair donned by her 20-year- old counterpart in her 1995 comeback? A musician at heart, Giacino penned a musical number skewering the 'princess pop culture' that transformed Pocahontas from a revered Native American heroine into a pin-up vixen of the silver screen. Soon, Giacino found himself discovering a number of other 'princesses' who had been similarly wronged, and DISENCHANTED! was born!
