Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical jam-packed with comedy, adventure, Disney characters, and hit songs from the films!
Imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost – home of the most infamous villains who ever lived – the teenaged children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil have never ventured off the island…until now. When the four troublemakers are sent to attend prep school alongside the children of beloved Disney heroes, they have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good? – MTI
Why Disney’s Descendants?
Based on the wildly popular movie franchise, Disney’s Descendants expands the world of characters we know and love from the Disney canon as we learn about the fate of infamous villains and the heroes who won the day as they all work to create a new world, full of joy, peace, and prosperity. This musical adaptation challenges audiences to be open minded to how anyone can learn and grow from mistakes and become all the better for it and, most importantly, that no one is born evil, nothing is preordained, and that we alone have the power to make our own choices on who we want to be and how we handle situations.
