Kids Acts Philippines presents a pre-Christmas staging of MULAN!

MULAN is a popular Chinese heroine that comes from an old Chinese folktale called THE BALLAD OF MULAN.  Originally a poem – Hua Mulan’s story has been adapted into a number of different versions over the years including the famous Disney animation film of the same title ‘MULAN,’ that captured the hearts of both young and adults alike with it’s awesome animated graphic details and songs like REFLECTION sung by Lea Salonga.

Fearless and determined, Mulan’s story starts out as China is facing the threat of the Huns.  The Emperor seeks out the help of the men of different families to fight in battle.  Former military man and Mulan’s father is among those chosen.  Too old and sick to participate but also too honorable to walk away from the duty.  Mulan’s father and his family are faced with the dilemna of being unable to send someone in his place.  Without a male member who is old enough to fight, Mulan steps forward to serve in the army in his place.

This version of Mulan’s tale, unlike the other popular versions, shows the perspective of her siblings.  It also shows that her parents have given her their blessings to do what she must.  Mulan will then take appropriate measures to prepare for battle. The story unfolds around her buying the necessary equipment she will need before setting out.  It also exhibits the different seasons she goes through during the course of the war.  When Mulan comes home, she amazes everyone with the fact that she is indeed a woman.
