Theater students from American Academy (AA) took a trip to Walt Disney World over fall break to experience the park and Disney entertainment from the performers and Imagineers (Disney engineers) perspective. The goal was to learn about the theatrical process, from set design to performances and everything in between. The students were even fortunate enough to participate in Disney auditions.
