Spotlight: East Orlando Community Theater Group Wins National Competition at Disney
Magic Curtain Productions is a community theater organization in East Orlando. This weekend children and teens are performing “Into the Woods” at the non-profit’s theater on South Alafaya Trail. A group of 52 drama students from Magic Curtain recently won a national theater festival at Disney World. This was their first time participating.
“Our senior troupe won the showcase award. They were able to perform at Downtown Disney for a large crowd,” said Rhonda Cato, Magic Curtain’s artistic director.
Broadway and Disney performers were the judges. 10-year-old Ella Bisson won the Outstanding Young Solo award for singing “Tomorrow” from Annie. “In my opinion it wasn’t really nerve-racking but it was just an amazing experience,” said Bisson.
