Spring Production - 2018

 DISNEY’S…Journey to the Dark Side

From the Villain’s prospective!

Did you ever wonder how those Disney characters became villains or what turned their poor unfortunate souls bad?  Well, you’ll find the answers by attending Forest Dance Academy’s 35th Annual Spring Production. 

You don’t want to miss “Disney’s … Journey to the Dark Side”

Our show opens with the baddest of bad villains locked up in the dark dungeon of the castle.  And then we will take you on a journey with Cruella De Vil, The Evil Queen, Ursula, Queen of Hearts, Scar, Maleficent, and even Captain Hook to find out why they’re so wicked.

Everyone views them as monsters and society looks down on them.  How did they get the way they are?  Why have they done bad things?  Are they really good people who are just different and want to be accepted?  Will they ever get out of jail?  These are all thought provoking questions.

Reserve your tickets today to find the answers to all these questions!
