Character Descriptions

Ancestors – LEAD ROLE
The Ancestors need to be strong actor/singers that can carry solo work.

Mulan – LEAD ROLE
Mulan is on stage for most of the show and needs to carry a great deal vocally while telling the story.

Mushu – LEAD ROLE
Mushu (MOO shoo) – Comedy is very important for this character (a talking dragon), but the audience must also feel sympathy for Mushu’s struggle to get back into the Temple.

Shang – LEAD ROLE
Shang needs to have strength, but also the openness to learn from Mulan.

Fa Zhou – SUPPORTING ROLE
Fa Zhou (fa ZOO), Mulan’s father, requires a confident and calm performer who has a strong presence and can sing, at least a little.

Fa Li – SUPPORTING ROLE
Fa Li, Mulan’s mother, is someone who also possesses strength but understands her place in her generation and culture.

Grandmother Fa – SUPPORTING ROLE
Grandmother Fa sees greatness in Mulan, but still wants her to achieve it through tradition.

Chi Fu – SUPPORTING ROLE
Chi Fu (chee FU) is your typical “bad guy,” the quintessential political character, manipulative and proud to a fault.

Yao, Ling and Qian-Po – SUPPORTING ROLE
Yao, Ling and Qian-Po (cheeann-PO) – “the Guys” – should be able to work as a team but be diverse in type to help distinguish them from the other Chinese Soldiers. Yao considers himself to be a big tough guy; he has a bark and bite, but all in all a good person. Ling is a bit of a scam artist, and not the brightest guy in the world.

Shan-yu – SUPPORTING ROLE
Shan-Yu (shawn YU) – The leader of the Huns, someone with tremendous presence who can convince the audience that he can lead an invasion.

Ensemble
The Ensemble provides sound effects throughout the show, but also steps into the action when needed to.
