The newly formed First Act Theater Arts is gearing up for an incredible inaugural season. With the success of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last month and Elf the Musical about to start performing this week, First Act KC is definitely a company you want to check out!
One of the shows on their winter lineup is the new musical based on the Disney film franchise, Descendants. This stage version contains all the songs and characters we know and love from the movies. This musical has a strong impact with several different vocal and dance styles and the show is packed with great roles for every type of performer.
Award-winning director Michelle Evans leads the creative load of this production. This is Michelle’s first time leading for First Act KC as well as her first time returning to the presidency since moving to Kansas City from the Atlanta area. She will be joined by an incredible artistic team including Lana Taylor as Music Director, Carlye Stone as Choreographer and Tyler MacSweeny as AD / SM. Auditions will take place on November 19 for 8-18 year olds and you can register by going to www.firstactkc.org.
The performances will take place from January 27 to 30, 2022 at the Goppert Theater of the University of Avila.
