SYNOPSIS

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 princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come to life to set the record straight.

Disenchanted! - Character Descriptions

SNOW WHITE – Lead role
Brassy and self-assured. The leader of the princess pack who likes to be in control. Also has a loving, maternal instinct. Aspires to be perfect, but she soon realizes that being perfectly ‘you’ is more important. Inclusive and diverse casting encouraged.

CINDERELLA – Lead role
Perky, quirky, and impish. She’s always enthusiastic, especially when it comes to being a real life princess, but is about to discover that there’s more to being a princess than pretty gowns and shiny glass slippers. Inclusive and diverse casting encouraged.

 

SLEEPING BEAUTY – Lead role
The perfect comic foil to Snow White. Always the flippant and unpredictable cut-up. She loves to dance (sometimes uncontrollably) and is a fantastic physical comedienne. She enjoys being perfectly and uniquely herself. Inclusive and diverse casting encouraged.

 

BELLE – Supporting role
A smart and witty bookworm from classic French lit who inexplicably speaks and sings with an American accent. She chats with inanimate objects, cleans up after her beast of a husband … and it’s slowly driving her insane. Inclusive and diverse casting encouraged.

HUA MULAN – Supporting role
A legendary folk hero of Asian descent from the poem The Ballad of Mulan. She has a good- natured sense of humor while maintaining a respect for her culture. She is excited to come out onstage and, through her heartfelt story, reveal her true self.

THE LITTLE MERMAID – Supporting role
Once innocent and obedient, she’s now rowdy and rebellious. Having regretfully given up her seemingly idyllic life under the sea, she copes with her new reality through inappropriate yet hilarious comedy. She is the life of the party!

POCAHONTAS – Supporting role
Plucky, valiant. She has been homogenized by an entertainment industry willing to distort her true Native-American story just to sell cinema tickets. As she comically mocks her glammed-up portrayal in Hollywood cartoons, she is on a journey to restore her authentic, historical self.

THE PRINCESS WHO KISSED THE FROG – Supporting role
Forgotten and left out of the kingdom for many years, this empowered African-American woman has now arrived on the scene as a feisty, fabulous storybook princess! She is the ultimate supreme diva in the land and she’s ready to take the world by storm!
