Schoolhouse Arts to Present Disney's MULAN JR.
Schoolhouse Arts Education Program in Standish is proud to present Disney's "Mulan, Jr." The theatrical performance takes audiences back to the legendary, storytelling days of ancient China. The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan (Sadie Dyer) and her mischievous sidekick Mushu (Kaylin Brown) to save the Emperor! Disney's "Mulan, Jr." is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit.
The play includes convincing performances from nearly 25 young actors, ages 8 to 15-who have spent the past 10 weeks working closely with the shows artistic staff. Attendees will enjoy score favorites like 'Honor to Us All', and 'I'll Make a Man Out of You'-as well as several new songs. Along with Sadie and Kaylin, the cast includes many talented actors and actresses, including: Annikka Mocciola, Kailynn Herrick, Nicole Adler, Molly Lemont, Reid Anderson, Emily Lemont, Isabel Kimble, Sophie Koutalakis, Sam D'amico, Chloe Smith, Montn Leslie, Ashley McBreairty, Alice Morrison Hannah Macri, Olivia Mrad, Devin Senter, Lily Rubin, Emily Wilcox, Tracy Lind, ElizaBeth Bennett, Michelle Meacham and Nyssa Mocciola.
