Disney’s Mulan Jr.
Travel back to the legendary, story-telling days of ancient China with this action-packed stage adaptation of Disney’s Mulan, based on the 1998 Disney film ‘Mulan” and the story “Fa Mulan” by Robert D. San Souci.
The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous sidekick Mushu to save the Emperor. Against her feeble father’s command, Mulan steals her father’s helmet and sword, dresses as a boy and runs away from home to go in his place. The Ancestors have no choice but to send the misfit dragon Mushu to stop Mulan, who will be killed is she is discovered.
Disney’s Mulan Jr. is a heart- warming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit. The score includes favorites like “Reflection”, Honor to Us All” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” as well as new songs that will get your audiences up on it’s feet! A must see for all ages!
