They're so lucky, they're the stars! The new musical Once Upon a One More Time has set initial Broadway casting.

Three cast members from Once Upon a One More Time's 2022 world-premiere production in D.C. will reprise their roles on Broadway. These include Briga Heelan as Cinderella, Justin Guarini as Prince Charming, and Aisha Jackson as Snow White.

Heelan will make her Broadway debut with the production. Jackson has appeared in Frozen, Waitress, and Beautiful on Broadway, and Guarini is best known as the runner-up on the first season of American Idol. He has since performed on Broadway in American Idiot, Wicked, and more.

Additional casting has yet to be announced.

Once Upon a One More Time centers on classic fairytale princesses, who have formed a book club and are looking for a new read. When a fairy godmother brings them Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, the princesses learn waiting around for a prince isn't the only path to happily ever after.

The musical is set to the hit songs of Britney Spears, including "...Baby One More Time," "Stronger," "Toxic," and "Oops!...I Did It Again."
