Local youth to appear in J*Company’s ‘Mulan’

‘Mulan’ cast members include performers from Carmel Valley.

The award-winning J*Company Youth Theatre, a program of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, Jacobs Family Campus, recently announced its production of Disney’s “Mulan.” Performances run Sept. 17 – Oct. 2 at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre.

A cast of 83 will tell this Chinese fable full of daring action and hilarious characters, Fa Mulan, the only daughter of an aged warrior, challenges society’s expectations by taking her father’s place —stealing her father’s conscription notice, cutting her hair, and impersonating a man to join the army countering a Hun invasion. Along with her guardian a dragon, a lucky cricket, assorted other companions, and some beautiful songs, she soon faces the Huns eye-to eye to protect her Emperor and becomes one of China’s greatest heroes. Mulan celebrates honor, courage, and the importance of family.

Captain Shang Cameron Chang, 13, Earl Warren Middle School
Yun – Ancestor (Love) Talia Goodman, 15, Canyon Crest Academy
Lin – Ancestor (Loyalty) Hannah Houts, 15, Canyon Crest Academy
