My Students

Imagine being given the opportunity to participate in the chance of a lifetime! To be given the opportunity to not only put on a real Disney production of the Lion King, but also perform on a real Broadway stage!

We are 55 talented and eager fourth and fifth grade students who have been given the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Disney Musicals in Schools program!

Our students are thrilled to be taking part in such a creative learning experience! Participating in theater arts is an outlet for our students to express their emotions, thoughts, and dreams. It not only helps to build their self-confidence but also stimulates creativity in problem solving and collaboration. This is our first year participating in this program and our students are eager and ready for the undertaking!

My Project

The materials and supplies I am requesting for my students will not only help us in our first year of putting on a Disney Musicals in Schools production, but will also help us to sustain the program for many more years to come! Our students need a variety of items to put on a production of The Lion King! These items are the materials necessary to create scenery and costumes.

Your donations to this project will help our students to put on a performance they can be proud of!

Theater arts is a great way to foster a love of creativity and performing while also helping to build self-confidence and communication skills. It is a safe place for students to express their feelings and emotions! Disney Musicals in Schools has given us the opportunity to provide this experience to our current students and with your support, many more students in the future as well!
