Stage Right Productions presents Disenchanted! A New Musical Comedy by Portland Playwright, Dennis Giacino, at 2nd Street Theater in Bend.
Funny songs and a powerful message challenge the notion that Happily Ever After doesn’t really exist in the world of these empowered Disney princesses. Disenchanted! directed and choreographed by Nancy Scher (World Goes ‘Round, Reefer Madness), is anything but Grimm, and features a plethora of talented performers including local actresses Megan Robertson as Snow White, Karen Sipes as Sleeping Beauty and Amy James as Cinderella. Rounding out the cast are Patty Davis, Robin Edwards, Stephanie Crespo, Kara Davison and Stephanie Slade.
The songs are witty, hilarious and catchy, with Ariel complaining she has “too legs too many,“ Pocahontas pointing out how convoluted and far from the truth her story got when the animated movie hit the big screen and Belle, who’s now totally gone off the deep end, talking to inanimate objects and complaining about her boyfriend’s mange.
“I’ve been waiting patiently to bring this hilarious show to our stage since April 2014,” says producer Sandy Klein, “As soon as Disenchanted! left its Off Broadway run and became available, I jumped on it.”
Performances will run May 5-27, with shows starting at 7:30pm Thursdays through Saturdays and Sunday Matinees at 3pm. There will be an Opening Night Champagne Reception from 6:30-7:30pm and a special Mother’s Day Reception from 2-3pm on Sunday May 14.
Tickets $25 Adults, $22 Student/Seniors.
