Waldo Theatre has cast its fall youth production, Disney’s “Mulan Jr.” Based on the 1998 Disney film “Mulan” and the story of “Fa Mulan by Robert D. San Souci, this lively theater adaptation will be brought to the Waldo stage in October.

Disney’s “Mulan Jr.” is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit. The score includes favorites “Reflection,” “Honor to Us All” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” as well as new songs. The show’s story is told through the ancestors who guide Mulan and the audience on this wonderful journey —Yun (Amelia Rosko), Zhang (Fiona Hall), Hong (Katherine McCue), Laozi (Sofie-Sawyer-Johnson) and Lin (Christina McClure).

Fa Zhou, Fa Li and Grandmother Fa, Mulan’s family, are being played by Tristan Korpinen, Justice Kennedy and Ivy Laakso. Mulan (Cayleigh Hearth) and Mushu (Kayleigh Tolley) enter the realm of the Chinese Army run by Shang (Braeden Waddell) and his soldiers Yao (Norbert Ferrero), Ling (Willow Crawford-Crudell) and Qian Po (Wyatt Sykes), all of whom are overseen by the politically challenged Chi Fu (Gabe Ferrero). They must all go to save the Emperor (Justin Gillman) from the Hun army run by Shan Yu (Sam Inman) and his sidekicks Magyar (Nathan Carlson) and Subar-Tu (Emma Tolley).

The cast is completed with Chinese soldiers, hair dressers, groomers, Huns, brides, etc., played by Katherine Tolley, Sam Hunter, Rachel Curtis-Bowden, Hermione Blanchard-Fleming, Andrew Lyndaker, Tristan Hearth and Thane Waddell. The role of the Matchmaker will be played by the only adult in the cast, Lois Thomas.

The show is directed by Melissa Hearth with musical assistance by Aaron Robinson. Performances will be Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22 at 7 p.m.; Sundays, Oct. 23 and 30 at 2 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Waldo, Main Street/Route 220.
