UW-WC Youth Theater is back and it's Musical time! This class teaches the kids everything they need to put on their own theater production. From stage design to costumes to lighting and sound to marketing to directing and producing to acting; the kids learn all of the disciplines needed to stage their very own play. The class's efforts culminate in performances of their play on the UW-WC stage.   

The kids will travel back to ancient China with this action-packed stage adaptation of Disney’s animated film.  Disney's Mulan JR. is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor, and the fighting spirit.

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!

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 all of the actors involved.

The class started on January 10th and runs each Saturday from 10:00 to noon with production dates on May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
