The talented students at Heartland Middle School put on a production of Mulan Jr. April 20th-22nd. Abigail Cotner and Zeb Obenofunde performed as Mulan and Shang on the 2oth and 21st. Caroline Muller and Eli White performed as Mulan and Shang on the 22nd. The talented John Dixon performed as Mushu for all four performances.

The stunning set design and beautiful costumes wowed the audiences. They were captivated by the performance and they felt transported back to ancient China. Many audience members forgot they were seeing a middle school musical and complimented the young actors on their performance. The shows on April 21st-22nd saw some technical difficulties, but the show went on thanks to Mrs. Mckenna who set in the front row of the audience and conducted all of the songs. At the Friday night performance on April 21st Graisen Turner expressed the entire casts’ thanks to Mrs. Skube, Mrs. Mckenna, and Mr. Eastland for directing the musical and coaching them through it. The Mulan cast party will be May 5 after school from 2:50-4:00.
