The Belle Theatre in Cape Coral continues its second season with Disenchanted, a new musical comedy. The original storybook heroines are none too happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture, so they’ve tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth. Disenchanted plays on stage now through Oct. 8.
The Belle Theatre presents Drinking Habits Oct. 13 – Nov. 5. This is a laugh-out-loud comedy with twists and turns throughout. Accusations, mistaken identities and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down.
Kick off the holiday season Florida style with Christmas in Paradise. Take a trip around the world with the cast of Southwest Florida locals as they explore the different celebrations that take place in countries near and far. The perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit, Christmas in Paradise will be presented Dec. 14 – 20.
The greatest star, the ultimate people person… the story of beloved comedienne Fanny Brice begins with her irrepressible youth in New York’s Lower East Side, where the stage-struck teenager clowns her way through burlesque and Vaudeville, with dreams of making it big. Funny Girl runs Jan. 5 – 21.
Unnecessary Farce will be on stage Feb. 2 – 18.
We Will Rock You is based on the music of Queen. Featuring more than 20 Queen hits, this fist-pumping, foot-stomping production is a perfect anthem to individuality. It runs March 8 – 24.
