Disney Musicals in Schools is a 17-week musical theater residency provided at no cost to local schools, and facilitated by a team of Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts teaching artists, and on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, local elementary schools will showcase the magic they’ve been working on for the past four months.

The Dr. Phillips Center and Disney Theatrical Group first partnered to bring the Disney Musicals in Schools program to the Orlando area in 2015, with the mission of developing sustainable musical theater programs in Orange, Osceola and Seminole county.

The program was created by Disney Theatrical Group in 2009 and has expanded to a national network of affiliate organizations.

Since its inception at the Dr. Phillips Center, more than 4,000 students have participated in the program, across 28 Title I elementary schools and spanning three counties.

Five schools including Idyllwilde Elementary, Lake Silver Elementary, Lakeview Elementary, Oak Hill Elementary and Riverside Elementary, will perform a scene from their selected Disney KIDS musical at the Walt Disney Theater at the Student Share Celebration, happening May 7, 2024.

The performance is free for all friends and family to attend. No reservations are required. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show will begin at 6:30 p.m.

This program is supported by Walt Disney World, as well as by AdventHealth.
