AUDITION INFORMATION

Initial Audition Information: 

Disenchanted is a cast of 6-10 women playing 10 iconic Disney Princesses who are breaking out of their storybook and telling their true story! The ladies who audition for this show should have excellent singing voices, as well as impeccable comedic timing! 

*Note- we are performing the high school edition of Disenchanted-so many of the song's lyrics have been changed from those on the soundtrack. To read the high school edition script, click HERE!*

We will be dedicating an hour before auditions for you to come fill out paperwork and to run through any song questions you may have with Dylan. He will be there from 5-6PM to answer any questions and give any advice you may want!

Initial Audition Date: November 15th 2021 at 6:00PM

For the initial audition for Disenchanted, our staff wants to see what you can do with a classic Disney Princess song!

CLICK HERE to see the 10 options you can choose from for your initial audition- you only need to choose one! The staff may ask to hear another, so familiarize yourself with all 10. In addition, we will go over all the cuts before auditions begin.

Group Callback Selections:

Six- Six (WARM UP)

Ex Wives- Six

Six- Six

In lieu of a traditional principal callback for disenchanted, we want to do a group callback. Our vocal director will pick 3-4 selections from the score that are in multiple part harmony. You will be split into voice parts and will be taught this material the day of the callback (although the cuts and audio clips will be available beforehand- we strongly suggest coming to callbacks with at least a familiarity of the material) Then you will sing in many different combinations- (full group, smaller groups, one person on a part, etc.) We are doing this to see who can sing in a group, blend, interact with other characters through song, and learn parts quickly- all things necessary for success in this show. Some of the cuts will have solos as well so we will see individual voices and character decisions as well as vocal blending and harmonies! We think this will be a fun way to see what you have to offer in a low-stress setting because everyone else will be learning the material along with you!

The Princesses: 

*Normally Belle, Rapunzel, and The Little Mermaid are played by the same actress, and Pocahontas, and Princess Badroulbador are played by the same actress. We may break those tracks up to cast more women in the show* 

Snow White- Brassy and self-assured. The leader of the princess pack who likes to be in control. Also has a loving, maternal instinct. Aspires to be perfect, but she soon realizes that being perfectly ‘you’ is more important. 

Cinderella- Perky, quirky, and impish. She’s always enthusiastic, especially when it comes to being a real life princess, but is about to discover that there’s more to being a princess than pretty gowns and shiny glass slippers. 

Sleeping Beauty- The perfect comic foil to Snow White. Always the flippant and unpredictable cut-up. She loves to dance (sometimes uncontrollably) and is a fantastic physical comedienne. She enjoys being perfectly and uniquely herself.

Belle- A smart and witty bookworm from classic French lit who inexplicably speaks and sings with an American accent. She chats with inanimate objects, cleans up after her beast of a husband … and it’s slowly driving her insane. 

The Little Mermaid- Once innocent and obedient, she’s now rowdy and rebellious. Having regretfully given up her seemingly idyllic life under the sea, she copes with her new reality through inappropriate yet hilarious comedy. She is the life of the party! 

Pocahontas- Plucky, valiant. She has been homogenized by an entertainment industry willing to distort her true Native-American story just to sell cinema tickets. As she comically mocks her glammed up portrayal in Hollywood cartoons, she is on a journey to restore her authentic, historical self.

The Princess who Kissed The Frog- Having been left out of the kingdom for decades, this Black princess is here to claim her throne and celebrate inclusivity and diversity in fairy tales. Confident; clever with a turn of phrase, loves a funny pop culture reference. Wonderfully witty; joyous.

Rapunzel- American capitalism won’t turn this campy, Mel Brooksian songstress into a damsel in distress. Nein! Brunehildesque, strong, and fun-loving, she’s bent on getting her fair share from those who make bank off fairy tale princesses. Inclusive and diverse casting encouraged.

Princess Badroulbadour- Originally from the South-Asian-turned-Middle-Eastern Aladdin sagas, this sultan’s daughter has had enough of being secondary in her own tale. Misogyny begone! It’s a whole new world and this independent and puckish princess is taking her story back!
