Disenchanted: A Cabaret of Twisted Fairy Tales : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Disenchanted: A Cabaret of Twisted Fairy Tales

I never knew I needed a raunchy, operatic 'Into the Woods', but I did.

See tickets below

Welcome to Madame d'Aulnoy's Parisian Salon. The year is 1699, the plague threatens and Mme D, the Godmother of Fairy Tales, is in lockdown. Sidelined fairy tale characters are desperate to tell her their side of the story, but what can she do? The Magic Mirror comes to the rescue, leading to an intimate, behind-the-scenes expose of what's really going on in your favourite fairy tales: Why Grandma was in bed with a wolf, how the golden-egg-laying goose became revolutionised, why six of Bluebeard’s six wives died unnoticed…and what this all has to do with the revolution.

Nominated for best cabaret at the Melbourne Fringe, best team behind a solo show and best 18+ show for the Young-Howze Theater Awards (USA) this digital reimagining of a live show is magical. 

“Sexy and subversive, audacious and hilarious, this show puts a knife in the back of traditional fairy tales." - Katie Mac

"The wittiest lines and the raunchiest rhymes all while switching accents like one switches clothes... refreshing and vibrant." - Ricky and Dana Young-Howze

"Funny, naughty and sharp. Brillante. Not to be missed – join the fairy tale revolution immediately." - Chuck Moore
