MNM Theater Company Presents
Disenchanted! – A New Musical Comedy
May 12 – May 27 (Fridays – Sundays)
Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m.
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in this hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture, so they’ve tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth. Nominated for ‘Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical’ (Outer Critics Circle Awards) and ‘Best New Off-Broadway Musical” (Off Broadway Alliance), “Disenchanted!” will leave you rolling in the aisle ever after.
Tickets start at $50
May 13 at 10 a.m.
It’s a perfect, balmy night in the outback. A sleep-deprived camper, a cheeky quokka and an emu with a penchant for creating wild inventions, awake to discover that a koala has come down with a stubborn and ear-shatteringly loud case of hiccups! The three embark on an epic journey through the night that sees them frantically eat, sing, and invent their way towards a cure before the sun comes up. Hiccup! is a hilarious, rocking musical extravaganza about working together, finding friendship, and how to, once and for all, stop the hiccups.
This Family Fare presentation is sensory-friendly for children of all abilities.
Sponsored by the Stiller Family Foundation.
