My students are so excited to be able to showcase their hidden talents in musical theater by participating in Disney's "The Lion King Kids." We are a low-income school with a high population of English Learners. For many of our students being part of the cast is their first experience in participating in a musical production as the affordability of taking singing, dancing or acting lessons is outside what their families can provide.
We believe students thrive when they are encouraged to express themselves in the arts.
Performing in a Disney Musical in School's production is the opportunity of a lifetime. We cannot wait to see the reaction of our audience when the curtain opens and our voices join in chorus.
As an up and coming school of the arts, the students at our elementary will benefit from the new technology growing in theater arts. Microphones and LED lighting are just some examples that will grow students' understanding of combining technology and performing. Microphones are essential in amplifying the students' voices so the audience will hear their singing, dialogue, and sound effects. LED lighting will create an ambiance emphasizing their performance, while captivating the audience's eye. Students will feel confident and excited to participate in the musical theater project with true to life theater technology.
This production will be viewed as a professional learning experience for all students involved and the equipment will last for years to come.
Hundreds of students will benefit from these materials and thousands of people in the audience will appreciate the hard work of the actors and singers on stage.
