PENN – Singers and performers with the Jennersville Y’s theatre group are busy packing their bags for a dream-come-true trip to Disney’s Magic Kingdom on February 28. The 21 youth auditioned for Disney in July and have been busy rehearsing and recording sound tracks for their national stage debut. “The kids have been working hard to get everything perfect,” said Laura Woods, Director for the Jennersville youth performance theatre group. “This is a very special opportunity for them.”
At Disney, the youth will participate in a workshop with the directors of “Mary Poppins” and will work on a scene and dance performance. “We took the kids to see Mary Poppins in New York last year,” said Woods. “Now, they’ll get to perform with some of the same Broadway directors and choreographers. It’s a great experience for the kids.”
Proud parents and family members will travel with their children to watch the performances, including a 25 minute show in Downtown Disney. The group will perform five songs from their recent musical performances, including songs from Grease, High School Musical, and Seussical.
