Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious musical that is anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know, when these royal renegades toss off their tiaras, this hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical cleverly reveals what really happened ‘ever after’!

— AUDITION REQUIREMENTS —
Please prepare one character song and one contrasting song in the style of the show that showcases your vocal range, acting ability and comedic timing. No songs from DISENCHANTED will be accepted at auditions.

Please choose an appropriate starting place in your song/s and note that the panel may not need to hear all of your pieces. You may not be required to sing both songs but please be prepared if the production team requests. Auditionees may be required to take part in a vocal range exercise and a cold read of the script.

Please bring sheet music (in the correct key) in a folder ready for the piano accompanist. Backing tracks cannot be used for this audition. The vocal audition should take approximately ten minutes. Please arrive with enough time to adequately prepare yourself.

Please attach your performance CV as well as your headshot to your Cast98 profile. Auditionees must be at least 18 years of age at the time of their audition.

— CASTING —
DISENCHANTED requires a diverse cast with strong vocals and impeccable comedic timing.

SNOW WHITE – G3 to A5 (Legit sound, comfortable belt up to E5, with strong falsetto to A5)
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 – G3 to G5 (Strong head voice/falsetto)
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’s more to being a princess than gowns and glass slippers.

SLEEPING BEAUTY – A4 to D5 (Good mix)
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 mould and be perfectly herself.

BELLE – G3 to F5 (Good mix with strong twang)
A smart, witty French girl from classic literature 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 husband.

HUA MULAN – F3 to D5 (Alto)
Asian yet Americanised, 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 – G3 to E5 (Good mix with strong country twang)
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 – A4 to D5
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.

THE PRINCESS WHO KISSED THE FROG – A4 to F5 (Strong belt up to F5)
Forgotten and left out of the kingdom from many years, this empowered woman of colour 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!

RAPUNZEL – E3 to D5 (Strong lower range with broad & brassy resonance)
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 – A4 to F5
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!

Those selected to be in the cast of DISENCHTANTED will be required to pay a show fee.
