Four schools in Bedford, Coffee & Cumberland counties to join three Metro Nashville schools in their first year of Disney musical theater program.
When Disney Theatrical Group introduced Disney Musicals in Schools to Nashville in 2011, the idea of one day involving more than a thousand Tennessee students in its musical theater programs seemed like wishing upon a star.
For the first time since launching a pilot Disney Musicals in Schools program in 2011, TPAC is expanding it to students and educators in rural Tennessee communities, inviting two elementary schools in Bedford Country to participate.
This year, 27 Metro Schools participated in Disney Musicals in Schools with more than 1,200 students creating musical productions at their schools.

Five Metro schools have been selected to participate in the 2017-18 Disney Musicals in Schools program, an initiative developed by Disney Theatrical Productions to create sustainable theatre programs in disadvantaged schools.
