ENCHANTING! is an Original Musical Theatre Production by Cue The Lights Productions written and directed by Liana Del Mastro, with music, lyrics and musical direction by Darnell Thomas, choreography by Tamerra Herres and band direction by Antonio Cocuzzo.

Enchanting! will also feature an Art Exhibit by Andrew Abballe who conceptualizes elements of the playwright through his art work.

With the popularity of musical theatre shows like Into the Woods and Cinderella and movies and TV shows like Snow White and The Huntsman, Once Upon a Time and Grimm, this production explores the theme of fairy tale in a fun and modern approach. 

The Grimm Brothers were responsible for publishing some of the world’s most loved fairytales like, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Hansel & Gretel. Loosely based on these fairytale characters, ENCHANTING! brings together the fun and sensationalism of modern day show business and the old, magical folklore of the best-known fairy tales in a comical and entertaining way.

Synopsis:

“Tonight, on Entertainment Tonight: The fabulous Grimm brothers win 5 Academy Awards! But just how did these brothers get to be the youngest Academy Award winning filmmakers in history?”

Travel from Hollywood to Germany! Follow the story of young and popular filmmakers, Jacob and William Grimm and their clever and creative sister Stephie, who, with their conniving Agent/Aunt, find themselves lost in the middle of the Black Forest, where they stumble upon the small, quaint German town of Fableburg. Fableburg slowly unveils itself as a very strange and mysterious place, which appears to be stuck in the 1800’s. When the brothers decide that this town, with all its interesting characters like Ella, Sleepy Betty, Hans and Gretchen and Little Red, to name a few - would be the perfect place to write their next award-winning movies, the drama unfolds. But all is not as it seems! Beyond the town festivities, Maypole dances and gingerbread houses is a scheming, money-hungry Mayor, who has a secret past and big plans for the fairytale-like town of Fableburg.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

CueLights-PosterOL-1.jpg

You are cordially invited to attend an original Musical Theatre Production with a "variety show" twist, produced by Cue the Lights Productions, written and directed by Liana Del Mastro, musical direction by Darnell Thomas, with choreography by Tamerra Herres.
 
The theatre will be transformed into a lavish estate where a ritzy "Christmas House Party" is being held. The show breaks the "4th wall" by providing an immersive and sensory experience for the audience. Christmas sights, smells, sounds and tastes will transport the audience into the life of the story. Audience members become the guests of the house party and are treated to a Pre-Show Soiree where they are allowed to step onto the stage and get a drink at the bar. At show time, the "guests" will take their seats and the performers arrive on stage. The hosts, two old childhood friends, do their best to bring everyone into the Christmas spirit and treat everyone to live entertainment.
 
But just when it’s really beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas, the party mood begins to change and things take a turn for the worse. The morale and Christmas spirit is tainted as the guests are asked to decorate the tree as part of the festivities and share a Christmas memory. But when “Bad Santa” arrives the annoyance starts to spread, leading to slapstick and comical moments. Through all this, the guests talk about the memories of Christmas past, many hilarious and annoying family antics. Much to the dismay of the hosts, the parties’ positive Christmas vibe changes, taking a turn for the worse, and hilarity ensues as the guests begin to bicker and lose all Christmas spirit. Frantically, the hosts try to regain control of their party and restore the spirit of the season. The hosts draw on the fondest of memories with the guests, and every time their spirit is lifted, the Stage Christmas tree lights up. By the end, the tree is fully decorated, lit and the story of the meaning of Christmas is told.
