Auditions – DISENCHANTED!

“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 back to life to set the record straight.”

CHARACTER BIOS

We are seeking 6-10 of all ages (see descriptions below), shapes, sizes and ethnicities. Must have strong comic timing and singing voice.  These characters are based on the original fairy tales of Grimm, Perrault, de Villeneuve, as well as historic accounts and legend.  Add in a healthy dose of modern-day, strong, independent woman and you have ‘Disenchanted!’  We support non-traditional casting; all are encouraged to audition.

SNOW WHITE – [30s-50s] [E3–B5 (strong A3–G5)]

Brassy and ballsy, sassy and self-assured. Leader of the Princess pack. Likes to be in control. Equal parts serious-minded, sexy, and fun-loving. She aspires to be perfect in all that she does but soon realizes that being perfectly ‘you’ is more important. Must have great ‘straight man’ comedic timing, improvisation skills with fantastic soprano range (belt, mix, legit).

CINDERELLA – [20s-50s] [A3-A5]

Perky and quirky, slightly ditzy. She is always enthusiastic – especially when it comes to being a real-life princess. A happy-go-lucky woman who is about to discover that there’s more to being a princess than gowns and glass slippers.  Must have great comedic timing, improvisational skills with a strong soprano belt.

SLEEPING BEAUTY – [20s-50s] [Eb3-A5]

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.  Must have great physical comedy and timing and improvisational skills.

HUA MULAN / POCAHONTAS / PRINCESS BADROULBADOUR[20s – 50s] [G3-A5 (belt to E5)]

Triple role. Must have the ability to play equal parts understated masculinity (Hua Mulan), overtly feminine (Pocahontas), and cheesy-jazzy lounge singer (Princess Badroulbadour from the Aladdin stories). Must have amazing comedic timing, strong improvisation skills, physical comedy, strong soprano with pop belt.

THE PRINCESS WHO KISSED THE FROG[20s – 50s] [F#3-F#5]

Forgotten and left out of the kingdom for many years, this empowered African-American woman has now arrived on the scene as a fabulous, show-stopping storybook princess! She is the ultimate supreme diva in the land and she’s ready to take the world by storm!  Must have strong vocal chops (high belt) as well as great comedic timing and improvisational skills.

BELLE / THE LITTLE MERMAID / RAPUNZEL – [20s – 50s] [Mix/belt to E5; hit C#3]:

Triple role. Must have fantastic comedic timing, improvisation skills, physical comedy, the ability to play equal parts comically insane (Belle), rebellious, jaded, bitter lush (The Little Mermaid) and over-the-top Mel-Brooksian/Wagnerian singing German monster (Rapunzel). Must have a strong mezzo-soprano mix/belt to E5; also hit a C#3.
