Disney Musicals in Schools builds sustainable musical theater programs in public elementary schools throughout Omaha, Council Bluffs, Lincoln and surrounding communities.
Each year, a select group of new schools are provided free performance materials and in-school support from a team of teaching artists to produce a 30-minute Disney KIDS musical at their school. Over 17 weeks, teachers learn how to produce, direct, choreograph and music direct their first school show.
The program builds up to a Student Share Celebration at the Holland Center in which each school performs one number from their musical for an audience of students, teachers, family and community members. Disney Musicals in Schools has helped schools across the country launch new theater programs. The program is developed in partnership with The Walt Disney Company.

“The life skills being passed on to our Disney performers are invaluable. An increase in student confidence and self-discipline is evident in the students who are taking part in this unique experience.”
