If you are a High School Musical, Descendants, and Julie and the Phantoms fan, if your childhood crush was Christian Bale in Newsies and if have you been quoting Hocus Pocus since 1993, get ready for the Back To The Musical World Convention, which will be held in Paris, December 18th and 19th.
Kenny Ortega, the incredible director of all these movies and tv shows, will be there for 2 days. He will be joined by some of the greatest talents he has discovered throughout his career.
As stated on the Dream It Convention website, this edition will be the first convention in this universe. Founded in 2017 by Aurélia Hanoufa and Maria Qamari, the Dream It Conventions previous themes included The Maze Runner franchise, Gossip Girls, Reign…
When the pandemic started, Dream It Conventions found a way to keep the magic alive by switching to virtual conventions thanks to Dream It At Home, with some pretty incredible actors as guests: Tom Ellis (Lucifer), Amina Suman (Shadow and Bone), Gavin Leatherwood (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Madison Reyes (Julie and the Phantoms) to name a few.
The “Back to the Musical World” live edition in Paris will introduce some of the biggest actors and future stars discovered by director Kenny Ortega: Madison Reyes, Charlie Gillespie, Jadah Marie, and Sasha Carlson from Julie and the Phantoms, but also Lucas Grabeel, Booboo Stewart, Monique Coleman, and Mitchell Hope. During the convention, fans will be able to get access to panels, meeting rooms and boutiques, photoshoots with their favorite stars, autographs…
In order to access the convention, fans should buy tickets on the Dream It Conventions website. For example, you can buy a pass “Kenny Ortega Meet and Greet” for 140 euros, which is a 30 minutes meeting with the director, with a limited number of fans. You can even get access to songwriting classes with Charlie Gillespie and Madison Reyes, or learn your favorite High School Musical dance with Lucas Grabeel.
In short, this weekend promises to be full of fun activities and magic, but it will also be a beautiful way to meet people from all over the world who share the same passion and love for musicals, movies, and series as you. After almost two years where a lot of people had to put aside meeting new people and friends, this convention feels like the light at the end of the tunnel.
And of course, FandomWire will be there to cover the event and to share with you this amazing fan convention, so stay tuned!
