The New Orleans/Louisiana premiere of "Zanna, Don't! (A Musical Fairy Tale)" will open at The Shadowbox Theatre, located at 2400 St. Claude Avenue-New Orleans, LA-70117, on March 14 and run March 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, and 30.

"Zanna, Don't" is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning 2003 off-Broadway musical written by Tim Acito with additional lyrics and material by Alexander Dinelaris. The show is set in a parallel magical universe where homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuality is taboo. Set in a mid-western all-American type town, the action takes place at heterophobic Heartsville High. Zanna, the school matchmaker (think Dolly Levi with more flair), brings together happy same-sex couples until the football team's handsome quarterback and the lovely captain of the Girls' Intramural Mechanical Bull-Riding Team begin to discover their feelings for each other.
In addition to receiving several 2003 Drama Desk and Outer Critic Circle award nominations, the original production of "Zanna, Don't" won the Lucille Lortel award for best choreography as well as the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York Theater Production and was voted Favorite Off-Broadway Musical in the Broadway.com Audience Awards.
Following the sold out run of the Big Easy Award nominated "Evil Dead the Musical", "Zanna Don't" will be quite a change of pace; going from the world of blood, dismemberment, and evil Candarian demons to a celebration of love and diversity! "See 'Em On Stage: A Production Company" is proud to continue its mission of bringing musicals to the New Orleans theater community that are brand new to local audiences.
"Zanna, Don't!" is produced and directed by Christopher Bentivegna. Choreography and assistant direction is provided by Lindsey Romig. Natalie True is the music director (leading a live rock band).
Ariel Schwab will serve as production manager. Caroline St. Amant is the stage manager and Michelle deMontluzin is the production designer. Elizabeth Corley will contribute to special effects.
