Participants are eligible to receive a scholarship to use toward Saturday Theatre Classes.

Apply to be an Intern

"Besides being a ton of fun, interning with MCT summer camps gave me hands-on experience in production management and showed me the power of theater education. Interacting with the kids and working alongside professional educators was transformative."


- Nick Schrier, Cocodaco Dance Project of Chicago
"Being an Intern for MCT was an experience like no other. Having the opportunity to see how a show is put together in the eyes of the set designer, music director, choreographer and acting coach really gave me a greater appreciation for what happens on the stage! And plus, there's nothing more fun than working with kids that are discovering how awesome it is to be on stage!"

- Elijah Curry, Carnival Cruise Line Entertainment

Disenchanted!
Book, music, and lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit 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 PROCEDURES

  • Kirk Wahamaki, the Director, will have everyone read from the script.
  • The Music Director, Janie Glerum, asks that you come prepared to sing a song of your choice, and please bring music for the accompanist.  
  • Choreographer asks that all those auditioning wear comfortable clothing and either dance shoes or shoes that tie as everyone will be asked to participate in the dance/movement segment.

 

 

CHARACTERS

Snow White (Lead): Female, 30-55, A3–G5; brassy and ballsy, sassy and self-assured. Leader of the Princess pack; likes to be in control; equal parts serious-minded, sexy, and fun-loving; she aspires to be perfect in all that she does but soon realizes that being perfectly ‘you’ is more important.
 
Cinderella (Lead): Female, 21-55, A3-A5; perky and quirky, slightly ditzy; she is always enthusiastic, especially when it comes to being a real-life princess; a happy-go-lucky woman who is about to discover that there’s more to being a princess than gowns and glass slippers.
 
Sleeping Beauty (Lead): Female, 21-55, B3-A5; 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.
 
Belle/The Little Mermaid/Rapunzel (Lead): Female, 21-55, mix/belt to E5; HIT C#3]: triple role; Equal parts comically insane (Belle), rebellious, jaded, bitter lush (The Little Mermaid) and over-the-top Mel-Brooksian/Wagnerian singing German monster (Rapunzel); must have a strong mezzo-soprano mix/belt to E5; also hit a C#3.
 
Hua Mulan/Pocahontas/Princess Badroulbadour (Lead): Female, 21-55, G3-A5 (belt to E5)]; triple role; Equal parts understated masculinity (Hua Mulan), overtly feminine (Pocahontas), and cheesy-jazzy lounge singer (Princess Badroulbadour from the Aladdin stories)
 
The Princess Who Kissed The Frog (Lead): Female, 21-55, F#3-F#5; forgotten and left out of the kingdom for many years, this empowered African-American woman has now arrived on the scene as a fabulous, show-stopping storybook princess; she is the ultimate supreme diva in the land and she’s ready to take the world by storm.
