Disney Musicals In Schools

“I have seen the growth in these children in so many ways this year...It creates critical thinkers.”
-Rebecca Anderson, Participating Teacher

Disney Musicals in Schools is a free program offered to a limited number of public elementary schools each year. Through the program, schools receive free performance rights and ShowKit materials to a 30-minute Disney musical written for elementary school performers. Over the course of a semester, professional teaching artists guide school teachers through the process of mounting a musical with student performers. The goal of Disney Musicals in Schools is to provide the training necessary for teachers to continue a tradition of theater education for years to come.

The Smith Center is proud to be included in the network of 26 theaters and performing arts centers across the U.S. and U.K. offering this inspiring program. To participate in The Smith Center’s Disney Musicals in Schools program, interested schools must submit an application. Schools eligible for participation will have 75% or more of their students enrolled in the Free and Reduced Price Lunch program, or be a designated CEP site.

Please contact the Education and Outreach Department with questions regarding participation in this program.
