July 13 - July 16, 2023

About the Show

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new 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?

Bismarck/Mandan audiences will love this hit musical, filled with fun pop music, creative costumes and many well-known and challenging characters! You’ll be #RottenToTheCore with Descendants: The Musical!

Disney’s Descendants is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All Authorized Performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
