Four Schools Join the Orlando Area Disney Musicals in Schools Program

Disney Musicals in Schools is an outreach program created by Disney Theatrical Group for under-resourced elementary schools. Thanks to Disney awarding the Dr. Philips Center Florida Hospital School of Arts a $100,000 grant, this program has reached the Orlando area for the second year of the three year program, and four new area schools have joined the line-up for this year. Here is the complete list:

New Schools:

  • Kaley Lake Como Elementary
  • OCPS Academic Center for Excellence
  • Pleasant Hill Elementary
  • Wicklow Elementary


Returning Schools:

  • Bonneville Elementary
  • Winegard Elementary
  • Lake Orienta Elementary
  • Kissimmee Elementary

Teaching Artists trained by the School of Arts and Disney Theatrical Group, will run a 17 week musical theater residency. Teachers from participating schools will partner with Teaching Artists to produce, direct, choreograph, and musically direct a 30 minute Disney KIDS musical. Each school will put on their own show at their respective school. The program will end with a Student Share Celebration, with each school preforming one number on the Dr. Philips Center Stage.

Rehearsals will begin in January 2018, with final preformances in May 2018.
