The Louisa County High School “Marching Lions” became stars of their own Disney show on April 12 when they entertained guests in EPCOT Park at the Walt Disney World Resort. They traveled more than 800 miles from Mineral to take part in the Disney Performing Arts Program.
The performers, under the direction of William Lamb and Amy Bourne, put on a musically delightful show as they marched through the Canadian pavilion in World Showcase towards Future World taking them past Space Ship Earth. By being part of this special show production, the students got an inside look at what it is like to be a professional in the entertainment industry.
This was the band’s second visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts Program, having first performed in 2012 at EPCOT Park.
Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
