Performance Overview

Disney Performing Arts Conservatory – Musical Theatre gives young performers the opportunity to improve their performance skills through immersive classes, professional panels and behind-the-scenes experiences. Over the course of 5 consecutive 8-hour days, participants will engage in a series of comprehensive workshops focusing on acting, dancing and vocals taught by entertainment professionals. On the final day, the Conservatory will culminate with a live performance at one of the Disneyland Resort theme parks.

The Disney Difference

Immersive Workshops and Classes: Each performer will participate in sessions focusing on acting, dancing and vocal performance. Participants will learn from industry-recognized teaching artists who will illustrate how each craft supports the overall quality of a group performance.

In-Park and Behind-the-Scenes Experiences: Participants will get the opportunity to see firsthand how the performing arts bring the Disneyland Resort theme parks to life by experiencing shows, atmosphere entertainment, parades and attractions. Participants will learn how to define the elements of a great show and experience Disney entertainment through the eyes of professional creators—from the wondrous stage show Frozen – Live at the Hyperion to the headline-hawking Red Car Trolley News Boys.

Professional Panels: Throughout the Conservatory, participants will learn techniques and receive amazing insights from those who have made the Disney magic you have come to know. Special guest educators to be announced at a later date.

Auditioning Workshop: Each participant will learn the keys to a successful audition and receive feedback from Disney Cast Members. After submitting a headshot and resume, participants who are age 18 or older will have an opportunity to be seen by the Disney Live Entertainment Casting Team.

Rehearsing Workshop: The main goal of the Conservatory is working toward a final live performance. The entire group of participants will rehearse daily under the direction of industry professionals and Disney Teaching Artists. Professional rehearsal techniques and habits will be reinforced along the way.

Final Performance: Rehearsal and preparation will be key as the group comes together to create a grand performance at one of the Disneyland Resort theme parks. This final performance will be open to Disney Performing Arts Conservatory friends and family, as well as Guests of the Disneyland Resort.
