A critically acclaimed musical parody is set to entertain audiences in Oxford as part of its UK tour.

Unfortunate: The Untold Story of Ursula the Sea Witch offers a unique take on Disney's Ursula’s side of the story from the famous underwater tale, with "filthy" humour and a pop soundtrack.

The show will be at Oxford Playhouse from Tuesday, April 23, to Saturday, April 27 as part of its tour which is set to run until July 14.

Off the back of a highly successful 10-week run in London, during which it received rave reviews and six Off West End Theatre Award nominations, Unfortunate is positioned as one of the most outstanding shows of the past year.

The cast includes Shawna Hamic, known for Orange is the New Black and 1776 on Broadway, who leads as Ursula, and who has also had roles in The Last Ship, Les Misérables and Kinky Boots.

Opposite her is Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK star River Medway, portraying Ariel.

Alongside them, Thomas Lowe plays Triton, Allie Dart plays Sebastian, Jamie Mawson will be Eric, and Julian Capolei will play Grimsby.

The ensemble also features Corrina Buchan, Jack Gray, Jamie McKillop, and Milly Willows.

The musical tells the story of the legendary queer queen, Ursula, with Maleficent’s moment and Cruella having her side told, it’s now Ursula's time to reign.

The latest version of this hit show is described as a "tell-all tale of sex, sorcery and suckers", boasting a new script and production.

Written by Robyn Grant and Daniel Foxx, with music by Tim Gilvin, the show features an array of professionals behind the scenes.

From set, costume and puppet design by Abby Clarke, to choreography by Melody Sinclair and additional orchestrations by Nikki and Joe Davison.

Lighting design will come from Adam King, sound by Lucy Baker-Swinburn and a host of other individuals helping to bring this production to life.

Unfortunate: The Untold Story of Ursula the Sea Witch has made a distinct mark in theatre circles, receiving high accolades from critics.

The Telegraph said: "This Disney parody could be the next Wicked."

Meanwhile, The Times labelled it as having a "cult potential", giving it a four star rating.

What’s on Stage highlighted the show's "knowing humour, a queer sensibility and lashings of glittery camp" while The Stage hailed it as "triumphant".

A five star review from West End Best Friend saw the production described as “one of the funniest musicals we’ve ever seen” while London Theatre Reviews described it as "witty, wild, and wonderful".
