KRT_Disney Descendants

Disney’s DESCENDANTS
Kincaid Regional Theatre (KRT)Teens
Oct. 14-17
[Falmouth, Ky.]

It is present-day, and in the kingdom of Auradon, all of Disney’s beloved heroes and royalty are living happily ever after, safe from the terrifying villains and troublesome sidekicks they have banished to the magic-free Isle of the Lost. That is until Ben, the benevolent teenage son of Belle and King Adam (The Beast), offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of the evilest villains. Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos – the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, and Jafar – are welcomed to Auradon Prep to attend school with the children of their parents’ sworn enemies. Now entering a completely foreign world and way of life, the four Villain Kids have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

Registration Open for Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati’s Virtual Summer CAMPS

ETC_logo(Cincinnati, OH) Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC) presents a summer of fun, active camps, which feature a variety of fun opportunities for kids and teens to connect with and learn from world-class theater professionals.

The camp day is structured to ensure participants are active and moving while still following instruction through a screen.

In addition to performance-focused camps and classes, ETC’s popular, one-of-a-kind Technical Theatre Intensive is a unique chance for aspiring artists who are eager to participate in theatre but who may prefer working behind-the-scenes. Featuring workshops taught by the same incredible talent that grace the ETC stage, participants will learn from the very best. No audition is necessary, however, space is limited.

Although the learning platform has shifted, the goals are still the same, with students leaving instruction equipped with a strong foundation of acting and production skills along with a practical portfolio, which may include a voiceover reel, on-camera acting experience, and set design.
