Disney Brings Musical Theater To Schools
Disney Brings Musical Theater To Schools

AIR DATE: February 4, 2014

Wynn and Beckley Elementary Schools have diverse and low-income student bodies. They have high numbers of English Language Learners, and little in the way of extra resources. But this year, both schools are participating in a program that will allow them to produce 30-minute Disney musicals with the help of teaching artists. After the program ends, the staff at school will know how to put on a musical that uses all the resources the school, and the community around it, have to offer.
