Disney VoluntEARS Stage Concert to Benefit Local Charity

Proceeds will help provide music education to Central Florida kids

Nearly 500 Walt Disney World Cast Members who share a passion for singing, dancing and acting are currently in rehearsals preparing for a musical performance to benefit local children with an interest in music.

Known for staging entertaining concerts for charities, the Encore! Cast Performing Arts group is getting ready to present "The Art of the Possible - The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber" later this month at Disney's Hollywood Studios Premier Theater. This year, the troupe has chosen A Gift For Music as their beneficiary. The non-profit organization provides free musical instruments and instruction to disadvantaged students in six Orange County public schools.

Founded in 2002, the Encore! Cast Performing Arts group enables Walt Disney World Cast Members and their families to showcase their talents and perform great music for worthy causes. The group of volunteer singers, instrumentalists, dancers, actors, flag performers and support staff donate more than 50,000 hours annually to create, rehearse and produce each Encore show.

Since its inception, Encore has donated all proceeds from ticket sales to local charities, raising more than $200,000 to date. Past recipients include: the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, United Arts of Central Florida, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Base Camp Children's Cancer Foundation, among others.

Ticket prices are $10-$35 and are now available at Park admission is not required for this event. Performances are scheduled for July 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.
