WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

Disney Musicals in Schools is a free program offered to a limited number of public elementary schools each year. Through the program schools receive free performance rights and ShowKit materials to a 30-minute Disney musical written for elementary school performers. Over the course of a semester, professional Teaching Artists guide school teachers through the process of mounting a musical with student performers. Our goal is to provide the training necessary for teachers to continue a tradition of theater education for years to come.

WHY MUSICAL THEATER?

Musical theater combines all the art forms and provides an engaging opportunity for young people to work onstage or behind the scenes. But beyond the joys of storytelling onstage, musical theater fosters:

  • Creativity
  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Problem-Solving
  • Empathy
  • And More
