Hicksville Middle School Drama Club presented Disney’s “Descendants,” the musical production that includes all of Disney’s favorite heroes and heroines living in peace and happily ever after, while all Disney’s evil villains are banished to the Isle of the Lost. The production included more than 50 actors, musicians and crew of students in grades 6, 7 and 8. Students performed to a live audience on March 17, 18 and 19. 

 The show started with the song “Better Together” followed by several more to include “Good is the New Bad,” “Ways to be Wicked,” and “Be Our Guest.” The production concluded with the entire company performing “Break This Down.” Some recognizable characters among the large cast included Maleficent, Cruella de Vil and Snow White.

 Hicksville Middle School Principal Mara Jorisch stated, “This production was especially significant for the cast and crew who were part of the production of 2020’s middle school play Shrek, as sixth graders at that time were not able to perform due to the pandemic. Little did we know it would be two years later until they were able to perform in front of an audience again.”  

 Jorisch praised the students for an incredible job and is happy to welcome back so many wonderful traditions at the middle school!  

 The performances were complemented by the skilled efforts of the crew.  Congratulations to director, choreographer and set designer Mr. DePalo, co-vocals and musical directors Ms. Haddock and Ms. Donnelly.
