Andrea O'Brien - Snow White
This is Andrea’s second show with Cappuccino after a fun stint this fall performing in Songs For A New World. Being a Disney princess is something she is familiar with but this show and this portrayal of Snow White is the sassiest, most fun she’s ever had! She hopes you finds this relatable and magical in its own ‘disenchanting’ way. Thigh gaps and big tits? The struggle is real - you know it is. This is Andreas last show as an O’Brien as she will be finding her own Happily Ever After with her real life prince charming - aka sports, beer, video game loving and majorly supportive theatre widow fiancé Ryan this spring. Enjoy the show! Now! Right now!
