Poisoned apples…glass slippers…Prince Charming. Who needs ’em? In this Disney-Princesses-Bridesmaids, hysterical and very direct musical, Snow White and her possé of sassy princesses prove that everyone has a dark side when they toss off their tiaras in an absurdly cheeky (and definitely NOT for the kiddies!) theatrical romp that’s anything but Grimm. Cinderella is kind of a nitwit; Snow White can be a little mean, and Sleeping Beauty? Apparently, she’s narcoleptic… and all three are “disenchanted.” When it comes to fairy-tale princesses, those are the “Big Three,” but they’re not the way Disney, let alone the Brothers Grimm, created them!

SNOW WHITE: Brassy and ballsy, sassy and self-assured. She is the leader of the Princess pack who likes to be in control. Equal parts serious-minded, sexy, and fun-loving. With her skin as white as snow and lips cherry red, she aspires to be perfect in all that she does but soon realizes that being perfectly ‘you’ is more important. Vocal Range: Soprano A3 – C6
CINDERELLA: Perky and quirky, slightly ditzy. She is always enthusiastic, especially when it comes to being a real-life princess. A happy-go-lucky girl who is about to discover that there is more to being a princess than gowns and glass slippers. Vocal Range: Mezzo/Soprano A3 – A5
SLEEPING BEAUTY: The perfect comic foil to Snow White’s perfect ‘straight-man.’ Always the cut-up, she brings a flippant unpredictability to the evening’s festivities. She’s a comical bull in a china shop. Some would prefer she fit into the stereotype of a perfect princess but she’d rather break the mold and be perfectly herself. Vocal Range: Mezzo/Soprano EB3 – A5
THE PRINCESS WHO KISSED THE FROG: 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! [Must be African American] Vocal Range:Mezzo F#3 – F#5
HUA MULAN: Strong yet gentle, shy yet out-going, she is a walking dichotomy of masculinity and femininity seeking self-acceptance in a world that would have her choose one or the other. [Must be Middle Eastern/Southeast Asian/ Pacific Islander; Will also double as Pocahontas and Princess Badroulbadour] Vocal range: Mezzo/Soprano G3 – A5 Full vocal range when doubling: G3 – A5
POCAHONTAS: The ultimate exploited girl who is a bizarre blend of the innocent little Powhatan tyke from history and the buxom babe from today’s pop princess culture. Her journey takes her back to her authentic, historically significant self. Vocal range: Mezzo/Soprano G3 – A5
PRINCESS BADROULBADOUR: The spunky princess from the Middle Eastern-South Asian Aladdin sagas. She’s had it up to her veils with being secondary in her own tale. She is unhappy with the misogyny and oppression of women in her stories (and in today’s world) but getting even puts a little ‘swing’ in her step! Vocal range: Mezzo/Soprano G3 – A5
THE LITTLE MERMAID: An innocent, obedient young woman turned rebellious, jaded lush. She has given up everything just to net a man, her father, her fin, even her voice. She can only move forward with baby steps; one foot in front of the other. [Will also double as Belle and Rapunzel;] Little Mermaid Vocal Range: Mezzo F3 – E5 Full vocal range when doubling: Contralto/Mezzo C2 – F#5 (will modify if C2 is too low…because that’s really low)
BELLE: A smart, witty French girl from classic lit driven crazy by the misrepresentation of her image in pop culture. An insane woman who finds herself speaking with inanimate objects and cleaning up after her beast of a boyfriend. Vocal Range: Mezzo G3 – F#5
RAPUNZEL: A strong German woman with a domineering personality, a big mole on her cheek, and a bushy unibrow! American capitalism has turned this frail, sheltered girl into a Mel Brooksian, Wagnerian singing monster bent on getting her fair share. Vocal Range: Contralto C2 – D5 (will modify if C2 is too low…because that’s really low.
