First produced for the Orlando Fringe Festival in 2011, DISENCHANTED! is an original theatrical stage musical written by Dennis T. Giacino (Book, Music & Lyrics). Our little group, Casting Spells Productions, is planning to produce DISENCHANTED! in Minneapolis, Minnesota this fall. The musical will be performed for 3 - 4 weeks at The Ritz Theater, a 250 seat venue in NE Minneapolis, during September and October of 2013.http://www.ritz-theater.org. Our media partner is Minnesota Monthly Magazine. Check out our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DisenchantedMpls?ref=hl 

Casting Spells Productions (Michael Shann, Mark Bergren & James Detmar) have secured the rights to this delightful musical and have 6 super-talented ladies cast in the roles. Kickstarter support is needed to fund the design and construction of the princesses' fairy tale existence including a storybook set, curtains, costumes, props and puppets.

We hope you'll join us on this journey. Watch this Kickstarter page for video updates as we proceed down the fairytale path to Opening Night.  

Risks and challenges

Every theatrical venture is risky. Funding, sponsors, marketing, casting, designs, rehearsals, selling tickets and operations all present obstacles. We are eating this elephant the only way we can, one bite at a time! Months of hard work are beginning to pay off. CastingSpellsProductions has a wonderful product, a talented team and a fantastic venue. DISENCHANTED! is well on its way to success.
