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?

The judge in former President Trump's civil fraud case is denying a request from Trump's legal team to delay the enforcement of penalties. The defense team had asked for a delay of 30 days to allow for what they called an "orderly post-judgment process." In an email posted to the court docket Thursday, the judge said Trump's team "failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay," adding that he was confident the Appellate Division would protect his rights.       Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny's cause of death is listed as "natural" on his medical report. That's according to his spokesperson who was given the information by his mother. The vocal critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin died while in prison last week. In a video statement posted on YouTube, Navalny's mother said she was "secretly" taken to view his body at the morgue.        GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley says she agrees with a recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos are children. However, she told CNN that she has not endorsed the ruling. Last week's ruling said embryos created during in-vitro fertilization are "extra uterine children," and are legally protected in Alabama like any other child.        Wall Street is closing with stocks sharply higher. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both closed at record highs. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 456 points to 39-069. The S&P 500 rose 105 points to 50-87. The Nasdaq grew 460 points to 16-041.       Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says he doesn't want to be Donald Trump's running mate. The former GOP presidential candidate said Wednesday that he's looking at other options, not long after Trump said DeSantis was on a short list of potential candidates for vice president. DeSantis also said he wasn't ruling out a 2028 run for the White House.       The First U.S. moon landing since 1972 is set to happen soon. Houston-based Intuitive Machines will try to guide its Odysseus lander onto the moon tonight. The lander will collect data needed by NASA which is planning to land near the moon's south pole later this decade. If successful, it would mark the first touchdown by a U.S.-built spacecraft since the Apollo 17 mission in 1972. Touchdown is now expected at 6:24 p.m. Eastern.
