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?

Maricopa Community Theatre began its youth programs in 2010 with a summer teen and children’s theatre summer camp. In 2016 we rebranded into Maricopa Community Youth Theatre!

Our Youth Theatre features ages 7-19. Participants of will learn stage presence and movement, voice projection, interpretation of characters along with all other aspects involved in the production of a play. All participants will have a part in the shows. We hold auditions in a warm, judgment-free, open environment and cast on skill and talent. Then we enter rehearsals where you will learn what it takes to put on a show, from learning music, dances, lines, blocking, and most of all HAVING FUN! So we invite you to come have fun and learn about how an actor prepares for the stage or the big screen! We hope to welcome you to our program soon and hope you will come and learn how to “Act Out” with us!
