Disney cast members are currently busy in preparation to put on Encore’s 11th annual concert, this year entitled “The Art of the Possible”, premiering in two weeks. The concert will feature the music of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, who wrote such hits as Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and Evita.
Encore! Cast Performing Arts is a completely volunteer-based entertainment powerhouse that incorporates choir, orchestra, acting, dancing and color guard into an evening of magic that is sure to move you. The group was founded in 2002 by only a handful of cast members but has since expanded to more than 500 members, earning collectively over $175,000 to date for charity. All the proceeds of each concert goes to benefits a cause chosen by its members, and this year’s charity is A Gift for Music. This program offers exposure to stringed instrument instruction to underprivileged elementary students.
Encore’s “The Art of the Possible” premieres July 19 at Premier Theater in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and runs on the weekends through July 28. Tickets range from $15 to $35. If you enjoy Disney’s Candlelight Processional each year, this a certainly a production not to be missed. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.EncoreCentral.org.
