Alumni Theater Company breathes new life into this remixed fairy tale as a stellar all Black cast delivers a stunning portrayal of cultural celebration that elevates what it means to be in control of your destiny.
The Plot: Changes are afoot in the kingdom of Auradon! Here, all of Disney’s favorite heroes and heroines are living in peace, happily ever after. Meanwhile, the evil villains and troubled sidekicks have been banished to the Isle of the Lost and stripped of their magic and powers. Ben, the beloved son of King Beast and Belle, is about to be crowned King of Auradon and has a radical idea. He invites four trouble-making offspring of the most wicked villains to take their places as students at Auradon Prep. Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos–the children of Maleficent, Grimhilde, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil–come to Auradon with an evil plan of their own.
These teenage troublemakers are at the same time given a chance at redemption by Ben, the son of King Beast and Belle, to attend the heroes’ boarding school and learn to be ‘good’. Will these delinquents take advantage of the opportunity to create their own narratives, or will they remain chained to the legacy of their evil parents? Do they have the potential to learn to be good?
Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical features the hit songs from the films.
