Lima Christian School is pleased to present the musical Disney’s Descendants: The Musical on Friday, March 10, at 7 pm and Saturday, March 11, at 2 pm and 7 pm. The musical will take place at the Honeoye Falls-Lima high school auditorium in Honeoye Falls.
Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is based on all three Disney Channel original Descendants movies. The stage version features an updated book and boasts a contemporary pop score, including songs from all three of the Disney Channel original movies, including “Rotten to the Core,” “If Only,” “Chillin’ Like a Villain,” and “Break This Down.”
In Descendants: The Musical, Disney’s favorite heroines and heroes live happily ever after in the shimmering kingdom of Auradon. Meanwhile, the world’s most evil villains have been banished to the Isle of the Lost and stripped of all magic and evil power. Ben, the beloved son of King Beast and Queen Belle, is about to be crowned as King of Auradon. When he optimistically invites four trouble-making offspring of the most wicked villains to come to Auradon Prep School as exchange students, it could usher in a new era of acceptance and unity or spell certain disaster. Will Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos–the children of Maleficent, Grimhilde, Jafar, and Cruella de Vil–accomplish their plan to steal Fairy Godmother’s wand and restore their parents to power? Or will they find the strength to choose goodness instead?
“One of the songs in the show says, ‘The road could be hard and the night could be dark, but like stars we’ll shine brightly wherever we are,’” says director Bethany Warsaw. “As we’ve learned during the past few years, we need each other, and we need to work together to bring light into the darkness. This musical shows that we are stronger when we work together, no matter what our backgrounds are, what we look like, or where we come from.”
