Disney Musicals

Disney Musicals in Schools


Disney Musicals in Schools is a free after-school program offered to a limited number of Title I schools each year. Through the 17 week program, elementary schools receive free performance rights and ShowKit materials to a 30-minute Disney musical written for up to 50 students. Three to four teachers per school must commit to participating in the program and will receive a stipend upon completion.

Over the course of a semester, professional Teaching Artists guide teachers through the process of mounting a musical at their school. The goal is to provide the training necessary for teachers and schools to be able to continue a theatre program for years to come. In February 2025, the four DMIS schools are invited to perform on the ASU Gammage stage in the Student Share Celebration.
