Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney's Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical comedy featuring the beloved characters and hit songs from the films!
It is present-day, and in the kingdom of Auradon, all of Disney’s beloved heroes and royalty are living happily ever after, safe from the terrifying villains and troublesome sidekicks they have banished to the magic-free Isle of the Lost. That is until Ben, the benevolent teenage son of Belle and King Adam (The Beast), offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of the evilest villains. Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos – the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, and Jafar – are welcomed to Auradon Prep to attend school with the children of their parents’ sworn enemies. Now entering a completely foreign world and way of life, the four Villain Kids have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.
July 6 - 26, 2020 Mon-Fri 9am-3:30pm
Performances: July 23, 24, 25, 26
Boys and Girls entering 3rd grade and up
What makes our musical theater camp experience unique? Each and every participant is featured and receives individual attention during their 3 weeks with us. We divide each show into 2 casts, opening up more lead/supporting roles opportunities and featured time on stage for all performers.
Also, students perform on our mainstage, using the set, lights, mics, props, and effects from the adult production that just took place.During the rehearsal process, our students work closely with our team of professionals benefiting from one-on-one training. Students work on every aspect of the production, gaining on-stage performance skills as well as backstage knowledge. We empower our students to work as a team and assist each other during the production, whether it be with set changes, props, costume, make-up, etc.
Parents and students continue to rave about the production value and professional experience they gain attending our camps. Our focus is on developing the young performers' skills and love for theater, not just shuffling around a large group of kids on stage.
