Dozens of Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD) students from five elementary schools are preparing to take the stage to perform some of their favorite Disney musicals thanks to a grant-funded partnership with the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and Disney Musicals in Schools.
This marks the third year that GGUSD schools have been selected to participate in the multi-year program which provides teaching artists the first year, as well as free materials, and licensing each year after. Eisenhower and Hill elementary schools are in the third year of the program, Stanley and Allen elementary schools are in the second year and Riverdale Elementary School is kicking off its first year.
The Disney Musicals in Schools performance schedule is as follows:
Allen Elementary School students will perform Aladdin on March 2 at 4:00 p.m., March 3 at 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and March 4 at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Eisenhower Elementary School students will perform Cinderella on March 8, March 9 and March 10 at 6:00 p.m. and March 11 at 1:00 p.m.
