Disenchanted! The Hit Musical

Friday 17th-Saturday 18th August 2018

The fast-paced musical features an all-star line-up of legendary fairy-tale characters whose lives are anything but happily-ever-after. In a format reminiscent of a cabaret comedy nightclub act, the Disney Divas each spill their individual beans about the challenges and struggles behind their Princess-dom, and in sisterhood solidarity, reveal taboo, tiara-tainting tabloid truths behind their iconic facades. Starring local actresses and directed by Sarah O’Connell, this show promises to be an unforgettably funny night out for adults.

This showcase of princess power promises to entertain, empower and make one rethink the tropes of the Disney princesses we’ve grown up with. Featuring local talent and newcomers to the stage: Sarah Churchman, Lysanne Van Zessen, Jess Twohill, Aimee Borlase, Ruby Hodgson, Tania Burns, Jojo Gary and Kameta Waharoa make up this posse of princesses.
