Disney Musicals in schools

Each year, a group of elementary schools are selected to participate free of charge. Schools receive a 17-week residency which culminates in a 30 minute Disney KIDS Musical at your school site. Working with professional teaching artists, your faculty will build skills necessary to produce a musical theater show starring your students. Through this process, students develop self-confidence, practice collaboration, and strengthen speaking and reading skills while learning musical theater techniques.
