…and they all lived happily-ever-after…or did they? Take a raucous, funny, eye-opening, thought-provoking look into how the women of the “Mouse House” really feel about their “Disney-fied” portrayals. The original “Bitches of the Kingdom”: Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, are joined by a host of other leading ladies of Disney animation including Pocahontas, Mulan, Esmeralda (from THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME), Jane Porter (of TARZAN fame) and others in this exploration. Together they lay it all out for you in song and dance in this brilliant and charming new musical revue. This estrogen filled romp will send you out of the theatre laughing and singing. You’ll never again watch a Disney cartoon quite the same way.
Please Note: This musical is for mature audiences.

About the Contest
The New Jersey Playwrights Contest (NJPC) supports the work of emerging New Jersey playwrights by exposing their work to the public through staged-readings and a full production of the winning play. Unpublished scripts by New Jersey residents are solicited in the Summer and through a rigorous selection process one play is selected to receive a professionally designed and directed production the following Spring semester.

All playwrights residing in the state of New Jersey are eligible to enter the NJPC. Students, and members of the local community, who have the time and energy to commit to a production are invited to participate. Open auditions for the staged-readings usually take place in early September and in December or January for the full production. Casts vary widely depending upon the reading or show but often include undergraduates from a variety of majors, alumni and other members of the University community as well as local community actors or semi-professional performers and on a rare occasion a professional actor. The artistic and technical staffs for all NJPC shows consist of fulltime and part-time theatre professionals working in the northern New Jersey area.
