Disney's Descendants: The Musical @ Regis College Fine Arts Center

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical comedy featuring the beloved characters and hit songs from the films!

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?

Produced through special arrangements with Music Theatre International.

Metamorphoses @ Regis College Blackbox Theatre
Jul 31 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Metamorphoses @ Regis College Blackbox Theatre

by Mary Zimmerman

Directed by Tristan Burke

From a simple, rippling pool of water, Zimmerman conjures the force of Ovid’s myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments and breathtaking storytelling. Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change. Tales of passion, betrayal, hope, and transformation invite us into a realm of shared cultural myths and beautiful, unshakable visions.

Nominated for three 2002 Tony Awards, including “Best Play,” “Metamorphoses” earned Zimmerman a Tony for “Best Direction of a Play.”

Produced through special arrangements with Bret Adams Ltd.
