HTY is excited to begin their 2017-2018 season with a play created by HTY company member Alvin Chan.  Chan’s original retelling of the ultimate “girl-power” story, The Ballad of Mu Lan mixes traditional Chinese theatrical techniques with original music for a new take on a classic story!  Not since Chan’s Five Chinese Brothers has HTY incorporated this level of acrobatic athleticism, training and live music into a single production. 

recommended ages 5+    

When Mu Lan dresses up as a boy to take her father’s place in the army she has lots to learn and lots to prove, but her biggest battle might be with herself.  This new telling of an ancient Chinese legend mixes traditional Chinese theatrical techniques and martial skills with contemporary music.   See what the team behind Anime Momotaro and A Korean Cinderella will do with one of the most famous girl power stories of all time. 

The Ballad of Mu Lan opens Friday August 25 at 7:00 PM at Tenney Theatre.   Audience members are invited to the Opening Night Reception in the Von Holt Room immediately following the show, where they can enjoy pupus and refreshments while rubbing shoulders with the show’s cast and crew.  Performances continue Saturdays, August 26 – September 30 at 4:30 PM, a Sensory Friendly performance Saturday, September 16 at 11:00 AM, and an Onstage Workshop Saturday September 9 at 2:30 PM.
