Disney Musicals in Schools

Disney Musicals in Schools is for students in grades 3-6 is an outreach initiative developed by Disney Theatrical Group to create sustainable theater programs.

The selected schools will participate in a 17-week musical theater residency, led by a team of teaching artists trained by Omaha Performing Arts and Disney Theatrical Group. Each school will receive performance rights, education support materials and guidance from the teaching artists. The program features a professional development focus, through which participating teachers partner with teaching artists to learn how to produce, direct, choreograph and music direct their first school show. The program culminates in a 30-minute Disney KIDS musical at each school site. Omaha Performing Arts will also host a Student Share Celebration in which each school performs one number from their show at the Holland Center for an audience of students, teachers, family and community members.

This program is sponsored by Disney, Debby Durham Family Foundation, Dixon Family Foundation, Sunny Durham Family Foundation, Hamann Family Fund, Holland Foundation, Parker Family Foundation, Amy L. Scott Family Foundation and Lori & David Scott Foundation.
