The first production of The Lesbian Fairytale Musical goes up April 27th at 8pm and 10:30pm in Presser Hall at the Whalen School of Music at Ithaca College - free admission! The LFM has been in production for just over a year, and as this production is a labor of love, we want everyone and anyone to be able to experience and enjoy the show, so we will not be charging admission.
Princess Addison (Addy) is sent as a peace offering from her home country of Adlburrow to the military powerhouse and “traditional moral beacon” nation of Provincia. There she’s greeted by the self-hating, closeted yet charming King Victor, who introduces lesbian Addy to her betrothed, the oafish yet lovable Prince Dimitri. But Addy takes far more notice of Dimitri’s sister—fiercely rebellious Princess Dahlia, who stands opposed to the moral standards her father Victor imposes on his citizens and also closeted daughter, but is powerless to fight against him. Addy immediately falls for Dahlia, but knows if the king catches her acting any less “traditional” than a medieval June Cleaver, he’ll retract the peace between Adlburrow and Provincia, and her nation will suffer a crushing military defeat.
The Lesbian Fairytale Musical is a full-length musical with an estimated running time of an hour and a half, with music and lyrics by junior Music Composition major Will Shishmanian, book by junior TV-R Scriptwriting major Sarah Kasulke, directed by Drama major Sara Stevens and casted and crewed by approximately thirty other Ithaca College students representing a spectrum of majors, interests, talents, and gender and sexual identities.
