Theater can be difficult. You have people who must learn lines. And others who need to make sure they are in the right place. You also have songs to learn and notes to hit. When done correctly it could be the best.
We all know the Disney classic of “Mulan” right? If you don’t, Mulan is a Chinese fairytale where Mulan’s father is summoned to war but is too old and too hurt to fight correctly. Mulan fears that he will not return so she takes his place in battle and dresses like a man and cuts her hair. She ends up being outed after she is wounded and kicked out of her plutone. After she begins to return home she sees that the bad guys that she was initially fighting were still after the Capital of China. She rounds up the best of her fighters and they end up defeating the bad guys and saving their capital.
This spring Village will be performing “Mulan Jr”. The performances will be March 9 at 7:00 pm and March 10 at 2:00 and 6:00 pm.
With the help of faculty, staff and parents this may be this best play Village has done. A new chorus teacher, Ms. Lanier, is taking on this play from an entirely different direction then students have in previous years.
“We currently only have one song under our belts but we should be able to finish everything by our first performance date.” said Marissa Borst, tenth grade, who will be playing Mulan’s mom.
Knightline congratulates all Village theater students on their announced roles. Tickets will be available online in late February.
