The afternoon performance will feature the talents of Jon Robyns (Avenue Q), Melanie la Barrie (Mary Poppins, Les Misérables) and Peter Land (Peter Pan, One Touch of Venus). The new musical was penned by Ian McFarlane. According to the Enchanted website, the musical is described as such: "Bailey Howard is a struggling writer living in New York. Desperate to write a fantasy novel in the same vein as his childhood favorites, he stares blankly at his typewriter awaiting inspiration. When flamboyant actor Cooper Fitzgerald answers his ad to find a roommate, it triggers a strange chain of events. The pair are transported to the enchanted kingdom of Taravatania where dark times have fallen on the people. The King and Queen have been transformed into goldfish, the Princess' fiancée has gone missing, and a soap opera actor from the real world is lost deep in the Taravatanian forest. Bailey and Cooper must travel through the kingdom to battle the evil Enchantress who has brought woe upon the land. Along the way they meet a host of strange and extraordinary characters, with every step of the journey bringing them closer towards a greater understanding of each other and themselves."
