My Students

The students at BDLA in our classrooms and are a bright light in our world. This production of Disney Musicals in Schools, "The Lion King", will be a chance for them to shine their lights on our school and our community. Our students come from an 100% free and reduced lunch program, so often times, their families are struggling to make ends meet. Yet our students show up every day and are ready to learn and have other life experiences.

This play allows our students to have an up-close experience with the theater and all the happiness and camaraderie that our theater group offers, with no judgments or labels placed upon them.

They can finally be the person that they might not be in the classroom. It improves their self-confidence, but also their academics.

The veterans of the play, our fourth and fifth graders, take the rookies, the third graders, under their wings and show them the ropes of our Disney Musicals in Schools program. You can watch the students come out of their shells, gain confidence, and participate in a group activity, whose memories will last a lifetime.

My Project

Our play will take place sometime in March. These materials will be used to bring the African savanna to life here at BDL PreK-8 Academy. The audience will be immersed in the play as the students become the characters in The Lion King. The supplies that we purchase will be part of the set, the costumes, and the props for our production. All the materials will help provide the suspension of belief that the actors, actresses, and audience will need to be transported to Africa to witness Disney's Musicals in Schools, The Lion King. With the assistance of Donors Choose, we will accomplish that.

In order to ensure that our musical comes to life, we need to outfit our performers with the proper costumes and our stage with the proper background.

The costumes will be simple, bright, and include the patterns of the animals in the African savanna. The stage will transport the audience to the savanna and offer an experience of the musical in the most realistic of ways.
