Rehearsals evenings and weekends February 20-March 24

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em? Join these fairytale princesses for an uproarious evening of irreverent humor and satirical snipes as they throw out their tiaras and start getting real. Snow White leads an all-star cast featuring Cinderella, Belle, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, and many more in this not-for-the-kiddies cabaret. Forget the princesses you think you know. These ladies will have you rolling in the aisle with their piercing take on happily ever after.

Called “Delightfully rowdy, hilarious, ebullient!” by Theatremania and “Fairytales with a sassy, modern twist!” by Time Out, New York, DISENCHANTED! has attracted sell-out audiences everywhere it’s been performed. It’s sure to be a sidesplitting evening of theatre you won’t want to miss.

Auditions by Appointment Only on the Following Dates:

  • November 6:630-9:30pm
  • November 7:630-9:30pm

Callbacks if needed will be held on November 9th from 6:30-8:30pm. You will be contacted promptly following the initial audition if you need to attend the callback date.
To schedule a time slot, please contact Greg Swiger, gswiger@thecarnegie.com.

Please Prepare:

  • A (16-32 bars) of a musical theatre song in the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided. Please bring sheet music in the correct key. A Cappella auditions, or those with pre-recorded accompaniment, will not be considered.
  • There will be a short movement audition, so please dress appropriately.
  • You may also be asked to read from the script

Please Note:

  • Resume listing theatrical experience and headshot/picture are required to audition. Pleas bring with you to the audition, do not send in advance.

  • All roles are paid. Not AEA eligible.

Auditions will take place at The Carnegie, Eva G. Farris Education Center
1028 Scott Blvd. Covington, KY 41011

Cast Breakdown:

6 actresses, some doubling, see below for tracks.

Women of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities. Ages may range from late 20s-50s+ provided the cast looks as if you’re all from the same generation (i.e. all 20s-30s; all 30s-40s; all 40s-50s). these women are NOT the Disney princesses! They are the women from the original fairytales based on Grimm, Perrault, de Villeneuve, historic accounts, and legend with a healthy dose of modern-day strong, independent woman mixed in.

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.

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 there’s more to being a princess than gowns and glass slippers.

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.

HUA MULAN
Asian yet Americanized, gentle yet strong, 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.

THE LITTLE MERMAID
An innocent, obedient young woman turned rebellious, jaded lush. She has given up everything–her father, her fin, even her voice–just to net a man. She can only move forward with baby steps; one foot in front of the other.

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.

RAPUNZEL
A strong German v’oman 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.

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!

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!

CHARACTER TRACKS
In the 6-woman cast, the tracks are as follows:
(Princesses can be of any race/ethnicity, except where specified)

  • Track 1–Snow White (Caucasian)
  • Track 2—Cinderella
  • Track 3–Sleeping Beauty
  • Track 4–Belle, The Little Mermaid, Rapunzel
  • Track 5–Hua Mulan, Pocahontas, Princess Badroulbadour (Asian-American, Pacific Islander)
  • Track 6–The Princess Who Kissed The Frog (African-American)
