Overture Center for the Arts is proud to announce we are recruiting for teaching artists for our educational program in affiliation with Disney Theatricals: Disney Musicals in Schools (DisneyMusicalsinSchools.com). Our goal for the program is clear: We want to create sustainable musical theater programs in elementary schools (grades 3-5) by providing school faculty with the training and tools necessary to do so. In the first two years of the program, Disney and Overture provide schools with free training and production materials. The schools provide the space and the students—and maybe some costumes and props. In the following years of the program tiered support is offered including professional development, an alumni student share and other opportunities.
The Basics of Disney Musicals in Schools:
In this multi-year program, over 17 weeks, two teaching artists work with a school team at year 1 schools once a week for a 90-minute rehearsal after school. School Teams are also required to rehearse for an additional 90 minutes each week without the presence of Teaching Artists. School Teams are made up of 3-5 teachers, including at least one arts specialist. We are currently working in 9 schools with two new schools this year in the Madison Metropolitan School District and are looking to expand outside of Dane County. Additionally, teaching artists provide ongoing support as subs and swings. Please see aniticpated payment schedule at the bottom of this form.
We invite you to apply to become one of Overture Center's Teaching Artists for DMIS program. Please complete this application by November 19, 2018. You will receive an immediate notification that your application has been received.
