Marching Yellow Jackets perform at Magic Kingdom

Members of Perrysburg High School "Marching Yellow Jackets" became stars of their own Disney
show on Nov. 25 when they entertained resort guests at the Magic Kingdom Park.
The group traveled more than 1,000 miles to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to take part in the
Disney Performing Arts program.
The marching band, under the direction of Scott Schleuter, entertained hundreds of Magic Kingdom Park
guests as they marched through Frontierland and around Cinderella Castle onto Main Street, U.S.A. before
the "Festival of Fantasy Parade."
This was the group’s second visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts program.
In addition to their performance, the students participated in the Disney Performing Arts "You’re
Instrumental Workshop," where they learned how to get the most of their rehearsals and honed their
sight-reading skills under the guidance of an experienced Disney Teaching Artist.
Dance, vocal and instrumental ensembles from all 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.
Disney Performing Arts unlocks student potential and helps young people make their own dreams come true –
whether it’s performing in front of an international audience of thousands at Disney theme parks and
resorts or honing their craft in enriching workshops and clinics taught by entertainment professionals.
