As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, I know the challenges my students face both in and out of the classroom every day. My students are dedicated agents of change who are constantly willing to be challenged. My students rise to every artistic challenge and thrive through opportunities that mend their academic grit with creativity through the performing arts.
My students are dedicated, talented young individuals who are driven by the performing arts, specifically our Disney Musicals in Schools Program.
The third through fifth grade students selected for this Disney Musicals in Schools Program have grit and have shown great growth through singing, acting, dancing, and overall character as a result of this program. We cannot wait to show you the results of this hard work and dedication through our performance of The Jungle Book this April!
This April, our school will be producing our 2nd Disney Musical - The Jungle Book! We could not be more excited and are looking to make this show a true Broadway production. For this production, students will be rehearsing from January through April and will have at least 4 shows for our school community.
Providing extra snacks for students during rehearsals and show nights will help them stay focused and ready to perform.
These snacks will provide cast members, crew members, and stage hands with the energy boost they need for The Jungle Book. Additionally, the requested popcorn maker can also be used during our multiple bake sale fundraisers leading up to the show.
