Pelham Children’s Theater Presents Mulan Jr.
Disney’s Mulan JR.
Travel back to ancient China with this action-packed stage adaptation of Disney’s animated film.
Defying the village matchmaker, Mulan takes up arms and disguises as a boy in order to spare her father from having to serve in the army. The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous sidekick Mushu to save the Emperor! Disney’s Mulan JR. is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor, and the fighting spirit. The show allows for a large ensemble of actors playing soldiers, family members, and brides-to-be. The score includes favorites like “Reflection,” “Honor to Us All” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” as well as new songs that will get the PCT audience up on its feet!

For over forty years, The Pelham Children’s Theater has been offering fifth and sixth graders a unique opportunity to experience the joy and amazement of theater. They are able to see the process develop from the audition through opening night. PCT has created a special kind of magic based on the natural creativity of children and their joy of performing. Each and every show is a celebration of children, family and our community.
Beginning the week of February 9th, rehearsals take place in the Prospect Hill Auditorium and Pelham Memorial High School Auditorium from 4:30-6:30pm Monday-Thursday, and Friday if needed. As we get closer to the performance date, extra time will be added as needed. Attendance for these rehearsals is mandatory. Each actor’s rehearsal schedule is different depending on their role in the production.
If your child is given a role in this year’s production, we count on your enthusiastic support along with your active participation. A list of volunteer committees can be viewed on our website at the time of registration. We will make every effort to match your talents with one of your choices. In addition, all parents will be asked to chaperone twice during rehearsals. Chaperones are essential for the safety of the children.
There will be a $100 registration fee if your child is accepted. If you require assistance with this fee, please contact Sheila Healy at PCTMailbox@gmail.com.
Each child will be given a script and asked to read a few lines from it. The directors will also ask each child to sing a few lines from a favorite song. Please bring completed Audition Form with photo attached as well as Parent Commitment Form. All parents/guardians will receive a follow-up email notifying them of audition results during the week of January 26th. Since this a one-cast production with space constraints, we are sometimes unable to cast all audition participants.
We ask before auditioning that you and your child are aware of both the rehearsal time and parental involvement commitment. For over 40 years, PCT has only been successful and possible because of the amazing talent of our children and the dedication of our families.
We look forward to a successful spring production and a rewarding experience for the PCT cast!
