Disney's Descendants is a part of our Mainstage KOS experience and is an audition-only production. We are committed to producing a high quality-large cast Mainstage production featuring cast members of all ages at least once a season. Those wishing to audition must pre-register before the deadline to receive audition information and a non-refundable audition fee of $10 will be due at the time of auditions. Following auditions, the cast list will be sent out to all those that auditioned. Those cast will have 48 hours to accept their role before the next person in line is offered the role. After being cast, the production fee of $130, will be due at the first rehearsal. The KOS Academy no-cut policy does not apply to this production.
Mainstage productions are a part of our Next Level Division and are designed for those wishing to participate in a highly professional and unique rehearsal and performance process. From the moment the show is cast, these artists embark on a transformative journey that demands dedication, discipline, and a deep passion for their craft. Surrounded by like-minded individuals who share their unwavering commitment to the art of musical theater, participants in this audition-only experience find themselves in an environment where creativity flourishes, excellence is required, and friendships are made.
At the end of our rehearsal time together, cast members will present a fully produced production with costumes, sets, props, lights, and special effects!
About Disney's Descendants
Descendants: The Musical is a musical jam-packed with comedy, adventure, Disney characters, and hit songs from the films!
Imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost – home of the most infamous villains who ever lived – the teenaged children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil have never ventured off the island… until now. When the four troublemakers are sent to attend prep school alongside the children of beloved Disney heroes, they have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?
