Burien’s Hi-Liners Performing “Mulan Jr.” This Weekend
Burien’s own Hi-Liners (Downstage Center) will be performing “Mulan, Jr.” this weekend at the Kent Performing Arts Center, which is located at Kent Meridian High School in (you guessed it…) Kent.
Performances are scheduled for:
- FRIDAY JULY 11th at 7pm
- SATURDAY JULY 12th at 7pm
- SUNDAY JULY 13th at 3pm
According to their website, “Mulan Jr.” is a musical based on the Disney movie:
Travel back to the legendary, story-telling days of ancient China with this action-packed stage adaptation of Disneyâ€™s Mulan.
The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous sidekick Mushu to save the Emperor!Â
Mulan Junior is a heart-warming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit. The score includes favorites like â€œReflection,â€ â€œHonor to Us Allâ€ and â€œIâ€™ll Make a Man Out of Youâ€ as well as new songs that will get you up on your feet!
The Hi-Liners were started in 1966 by Mr. William A Moeller, a teacher in the Highline School District. He founded a high school summer program he called The Hi-Liners, which quickly evolved from a summer group into a year ’round district wide performing group.
Each year the Hi-Liners have simple goals:
- As an organization to learn something new and apply that learning to make our program better
- To open at least one young mind to the magic of live musical theater and the unique talents they each possess
Auditions for the Hi-Liners are open to anyone between the ages of 9 and 22 and are held in early June for the summer program and in January for their Spring productions.Tickets to “Mulan, Jr.” are just $10 each, and can be purchased online here.
