Disney Tape Day

TBD - During Music Class

We will tape for Disney during your class period wearing our full & correct concert attire.


All students will perform regardless of future participation in Newhart Music. Disney wants a representation of the future group and it does not have to be the exact personnel. We have each group play 3 of our best songs from the Final Concert for a video tape that we will send to Disney along with a group photo.

Below are the requirements & information for groups that passed their audition and will perform at the Backlot Stage at California Adventure or if Disney builds a stage at Disneyland.


In the Fall, all students in the Advanced & the Ensemble Groups will need to wear their correct concert outfit for picture day, tape day, Winter Concert and for the actual performance (if we make it!). Following the performance the students will be expected to wear their Newhart T-shirts with jeans (or jean shorts/skirts) and tennis/gym shoes.
