Featuring excerpts from The Lion King, The Aristocats, Hercules, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Moana, this year’s cast of 21 fourth, fifth and sixth graders brought Disney to life in the Pratt Performing Arts Center. The musical revue was a hit with students and parents, as everyone seemed to have their favorite song.

Director Susan Kopp and Musical Director Brennan Stylez noted, “This is a truly talented, hard-working, and committed cast. We hope that through the experience, each student has gained a greater sense of self-confidence,...Read more
