MULAN JR Overview: 

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.

THE ORGANIZATION

The mission of Young Artists Initiative (YAI) is to transform lives through theater! We do this by educating young theater artists through accessible, high quality performing arts programming offered in an inclusive community setting.

 

Our vision: A creative and engaged community where young people flourish – on and off the stage.

 

The following core values guide all YAI activities:

• Access – We increase access to high quality performing arts experiences through free classes, scholarships, and low/no cost tickets.

• Respect and acceptance – We value all young people for who they are; we embrace the understanding that there are no “cookie cutter” kids or families.

• Community – We bridge communities as we build our YAI family through volunteer involvement, performance, and celebrating the creative potential in every child.

• Learning by doing – We encourage youth to reach their greatest creative potential through collaboration with professional artists and leadership opportunities.

• Going beyond – We believe that whatever we put into a performance is what we get out of it. This commitment and passion helps youth build the skills and confidence necessary to exceed expectations in theater and in life.
