Some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Forget everything you think you know about fairy tales, thanks to the off-beat musical “Disenchanted.” The show gives magical stories the bird.
Snow White and her princess gang don’t need poison apples or glass slippers in “Disenchanted,” a production where original storybook heroines have come to life to break the paradigm of beloved whimsical tales in a hilarious and melodic way.
“Disenchanted,” presented by Bootless Stageworks, hits the stage at St. Stephen’s Church, 1301 N. Broom St., Wilmington at 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday. COST $22. INFO bootless.org.
2. RFA’s band interests include screaming at people from the car window, breaking wind and bacon.
The quartet of Philly rockers have a history of playing in damp basements in the City of Brotherly Love. Having honed their skills during humble beginnings, the band has since dropped a couple of EPs, a self-titled album, a film soundtrack and the crew has gone on two national tours.
You can see RFA in action at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, 320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach at 10 p.m., Friday. COST Free. INFO dogfish.com or 226-BREW.
