RISE is thrilled to announce auditions for its next all-youth RISE JR production: DISNEY’S DESCENDANTS!

 

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical jam-packed with comedy, adventure, Disney characters, and hit songs from the films!

 

Imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost – home of the most infamous villains who ever lived – the teenaged children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil have never ventured off the island… until now. When the four troublemakers are sent to attend prep school alongside the children of beloved Disney heroes, they have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

By a vote of 13-1, the U.S. is standing alone in vetoing a resolution at the U.N. calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said the resolution voted on Tuesday would negatively impact sensitive negotiations to free hostages held by the Palestinian militant group Hamas.       A Los Angeles woman is being detained in Russia after being accused of treason. Russian authorities allege the 33-year-old dual national raised funds in support of Ukraine. The punishment for treason in Russia is up to 20 years in prison.        The Biden administration is announcing over a billion dollars of student loan debt forgiveness. Borrowers in the Saving on a Valuable Education or SAVE program who have made at least ten years of payments will be receiving an email from President Biden today. That amounts to an estimated 153-thousand borrowers. The Biden administration has now approved loan relief for nearly three-point-nine million Americans. A plan to forgive 20-thousand dollars in loans for 40-million people was invalidated by the Supreme Court last year.        Neuralink's first brain implant patient can control a computer mouse simply by thinking. That's the claim the company's founder, Elon Musk, made in an X Spaces event on Monday. Musk says the patient "seems to have made a full recovery." The neurotechnology company aims to eventually allow people with paralysis to regain motor function and Musk has said he hopes the implants could also help people with diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.       A trial involving the lyrics to "Hotel California" is getting underway today in Lower Manhattan. The words to the 1970s hit by the Eagles were written out by hand, but disappeared. Years later, a rare book dealer, a former Rock & Roll Hall of Fame curator and a memorabilia seller were accused of selling the lyrics to auction houses, while knowing they were stolen.        The Major League Soccer regular season kicks off this week.
