Is life all a Fairy tale? What about for those poor princesses who have to give up their dreams – be prim, not eat, always look immaculate and generally not have a voice.
Well no longer! Disenchanted is a wonderful musical, bringing to life 10 stories about what the princesses really want – not what Walt Disney prescribes.
The casting was perfect for the play with a sassy snow white [Tania Burns] the always cheerful Cinderella [Jojo Gary] and wunderbar Germanic Rapunzel [Sarah Churchman].
The intimate Ghost Light Theatre has been turned around to create a castle and lighting creatively adapts a minimalist stage.
The costumes hark back to Walt’s idea but take on the adjusted character of each princess. It’s barrel full of laughs -this is one play I thoroughly recommend seeing.
Disenchanted! is on at Ghost Light Theatre at 146 Bridge St, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm. Tickets at www.ghostlight.nz
