The drama club has already begun their preparations for the upcoming musical.  The musical selected is Mulan Jr. and currently many students are involved with the musical, both on and off the stage.  The play is being directed by Kathy Morgan and Alyssa Hetrick.  The students are divided into actors, ensemble, props, makeup and costumes.  The musical brings Disney’s Mulan to a level suitable for younger actors.  The musical closely follows the plot of Mulan.
