Four elementary schools in Bedford, Coffee and Cumberland counties will participate in their first year of TPAC’s Disney Musicals in Schools this year, continuing a rural expansion of the program developed by Disney Theatrical Group to create sustainable theater programs in under-resourced schools.
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.
In a lively preschool classroom in Nashville, children eagerly pick up their pretend paint buckets and use imaginary brushes to paint triangles, circles, and squares in the air. They follow the lead of Holly Cannon-Hesse, one of dozens of teaching artists who play a leading role in TPAC’s educational outreach.
