Overview/Synopsis
 
Set in ancient China, this story of adventure, courage and bravery is one for all ages. The story begins as Mulan's big day with the village Matchmaker is wrecked by her nervousness, thereby dishonoring her family, making herself feel terrible. Her Father, Fa Zhou is unexpectedly called to the army by the Emperor's councilor, but instead Mulan steals her father's helmet and sword, dresses as a boy and runs away from home to go in his place. The story continues as Mulan heroically saves the army from attack then masterminds a plan to rescue the kidnapped Emperor. Mulan is honored for her bravery and now has restored the honor to her family!

The ENSEMBLE provides sound effects throughout the show, but also steps into the action when needed to play FATHERS, MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS, SONS, DRESSMAKERS, HAIRDRESSERS, GROOMERS, YOUNG HSAIO, OLDER YI, YOUNG YI, MAGYAR, SUBAR-TU , CHEN, LIU and the CHEONGSAM SALESPERSON. The featured roles vary in size and vocal requirements, but the Ensemble will be needed to provide vocal power throughout and dance in the production numbers, so be sure to cast performers with a wide base of ability.

The ANCESTORS should have strong focus as they are observing the action throughout. They also need to be strong actor/singers that can carry solo work. It is helpful for them to match what they represent in either manner or physical type. LAOZI (pronounced LAU-tsi) represents Honor and is the leader of the group. LIN represents Loyalty and is the hardest on Mulan; Lin does not appreciate any challenges to the old-world belief system. ZHANG (ZANG) represents Strength, the strong silent type. HONG represents Destiny and is Laozi's right-hand man. YUN (YOON) represents Love and is Mulan's greatest advocate from the beginning - the mother
