The hilarious hit musical comes to Melbourne - 4 shows only

The world of fairytales will never be the same! Following multiple sold-out seasons across America and around the world, the hilarious hit musical DISENCHANTED is finally coming to Australia!

Proudly presented by Mad About Theatre, the Australian premiere of DISENCHANTED comes to the Athenaeum Theatre stage for a strictly limited season this September. Tickets are now on sale.

DISENCHANTED has been described by the New York Times as "...the show that feels like a girls'-night-out retro rebellion for the suburban oppressed".

This not-for-kids musical turns the cliched Disney princesses on their heads and cleverly reveals what really happened 'ever after' for the royal renegades.

Gone are the poisoned apples, tiaras and glass slippers and in their place is proud feminist Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses, including recently out of the closet Mulan, headstrong Princess Badroulbadour (Jasmine), hot mess Ariel, outspoken Rapunzel and historically accurate Pocahontas, who sing numbers such as "All I Wanna Do Is Eat', "Without The Guy", "Big Tits" and "Secondary Princess".

Armed with lovable on-stage larrikinism, DISENCHANTED is pure entertainment which isn't afraid to push aside the stereotypes we've grown up with.

"It's an absolute thrill to be bringing new, exciting and provocative theatre to Australia. These well-loved fairytale characters are ready to bippity-boppity bust out a little musical extravaganza of their own… there'll be no more tales as old as time as we set the record straight on what really happens happily ever after!" Director Madison Thew-Keyworth said.
