What would happen if you put six fairytale villains in a room together for a court-ordered therapy session? Can the most evil characters of all time ever truly be redeemed?
New Westminster Secondary School students are asking that question in a new musical revue, Brand New You! It’s onstage at the NWSS Theatre on Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3 at 7 p.m.
The production is being staged by the high school’s Musical Theatre Foundations course, an all-ages, non-auditioned course that introduces students of all levels to the world of musical theatre performance.
Audience members can enjoy about 55 minutes of what’s being billed as “drama, dance breaks and deviousness” as the Evil Queen, Captain Hook, Drizella, Anastasia, Ursula and Jafar confront their wicked ways with the help of a therapist.
The show features an original script accompanied by favourite Broadway songs.
Tickets are $12 for general seating, available through School Cash Online.
