Hoping for stardom, some kids find themselves inside beloved Hollywood musicals that are also Broadway’s best! They discover there’s no business like show business in “Annie, Get Your Gun”, perfect the art of film comedy in “Singin’ In The Rain”, and marvel at the World’s Fair in “Meet Me in St. Louis”. But when they go back to old-time London in “Oliver”, can they make their dreams of fame come true? Star in your own mini Broadway-to-Hollywood musical!

The barrier is down around the Island of the Lost, and any Descendants who wish can now enroll in Auraland Prep. But some are having trouble adapting to their new, unrotten ways. Meanwhile, some of the Good kids become curious what it’s like to be a Villain, and use a spell to swap places. When the Jewel-Bilee Festival is announced, some decide to steal the Jewels and seize power. Great songs from the original movies give this musical a magical sparkle. Descendants of the Descendants rule the school!
