Bartlett Park District Youth Theatre
presents Mulan Jr. March 15-18
Based on Disney’s Oscar-nominated film, Disney’s Mulan JR. is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and the fighting spirit. With hit songs and a story packed with action, humor and heart, Disney’s Mulan JR. brings ancient China to life with a modern sensibility.
The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous dragon sidekick, Mushu, to save the Emperor! Defying the village matchmaker, Mulan takes up arms and disguises herself as a boy in order to spare her father from having to serve in the army. As the great battle with the Huns approaches, Mulan must choose between revealing her true identity as a girl or saving all of China with her clever plan. Disney’s Mulan JR. is an effective way to introduce students to ancient Chinese culture and calls for a large ensemble of actors playing soldiers, family members and brides-to-be. Estimated run time including intermission is 75 minutes. Seating is reserved and all tickets are $9. Those under 3 years old do not need a ticket if they are sitting on a ticket holder’s lap. The production is held in the BCC Oak Room March 15, 16, & 17 at 7pm and March 17 & 18 at 1pm. Tickets go on sale January 23 at the Bartlett Community Center Registration Desk. All seating is reserved. Ticket orders are filled as received. For the best seats order early. To order tickets by phone with a credit card, call 630-540-4873.
