JOBURG Promusica has produced the stage version of Disney's Mulan Junior. It is for the first time the show has been professionally produced here.

A top local cast has been assembled for this magical theatrical encounter based on the popular 1998 animated Disney movie.

It is being staged at the Joburg Promusica Theatre in Florida Park, Roodepoort, and runs until December 12.

Join Carmen Pretorius (Mulan) as she embarks on an evocative trip of legend and lore. Other actors include Johan Baird (Blues Brothers), Ashleigh Harvey, Botha Enslin, Nicol Sheraton, Ayanda Yako and Jacques Moolman.

With a 17-member cast, songs straight from the Disney movie and professional choreography, the musical is in a league of its own and not to be missed.

The tale is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a clumsy young woman who disguises herself as a man in order to take her ailing father's place in the Imperial Army against the invading Hun forces.

Her brave subterfuge results in many adventures accompanied by a misfit dragon and a lucky cricket. She ultimately proves herself to be a deft thinker and true heroine.

With its strong central female character the story reflects universal themes that adults and children alike will relate to, such as the importance of overcoming prejudice and the individual making sacrifices for the greater good of society. Expect nonstop action, music and excitement in this irresistible and visually rich family show.

The auditorium, stage and technical facilities of the Joburg Promusica Theatre presents the most advanced theatre environment for children's theatre in Gauteng. With the accomplished Kosie Smit as set and lighting designer, we have the makings of a truly magical show.
