By on February 23, 2019

Pontiac Theatre IV is pleased to present our cast for Disney’s Mulan, Jr. 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. An invasion has occured, 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 has music and lyrics by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel, Stephen Schwartz, Jeanine Tesori and Alexa Junge. The music is adapted and arranged and additional music and lyrics are by Bryan Louiselle. The book is adapted and additional lyrics are by Patricia Cotter.
