Presentation of Mulan Saturday

Meridian, Miss. A local arts group is getting ready for a production of a Disney favorite, featuring lots of local kids.

Children ages four through 18 will be taking part in that production of the play, Mulan, this Saturday the Temple Theatre.

The group has been practicing for the last two weeks for the show as part of a workshop put on by the Meridian Performing Arts Center's Stage II program.

The students have learned the ropes of theatre and their parts over the last two weeks.

"A really cool thing about this workshop is that the kids have had the opportunity to make all their props and be involved in the singing and the dancing and everything that has to do with theater," said Lisa Malloy of Stage II.

Saturday's show begins at 11 a.m. at the Temple Theatre. Tickets are $5 for everyone, available at the door.
