Fountain Hills Theater announces the Arizona premier of the new musical, “Disenchanted!” which is a modern take on a fairy tale.

According to a press release, the musical dispenses with poisoned apples, glass slippers and the traditional idea of princesses, but describes royal renegades tossing tiaras in what is called a hilarious subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical.

Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses offer another slant on what really happens with “ever after,” even coining: OMFG! — Oh, My Fairy Godmother!

Disenchanted! is presented through special arrangement with Dennis T. Giacino and is produced by Leah Klein, directed by Peter J. Hill, musically directed by Robin Peterson and choreographed by Noel Irick.

The musical stars Brandi Bigley, Elizabeth Bridgewater, Breanna Ghostone, Erica Glenn, Juli Gore, Ariana Iniguez, Tina Khalil, Leah Klein, Anna Sell and Kori Stearns, added the release.

Disenchanted! will play May 10 – 26, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. , noted the release
