Mulan Jr. Coming To Mineola High School

The Mineola High School Drama Club and Thespian Troupe 276 will present Disney’s Mulan Jr. on Friday. May 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 10 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. In Asia, the story of Mulan is as familiar as Cinderella is in the United States. Mulan made its film debut in 1998 and was based on the story Fa Mulan by Robert D. San Souci.  

 

Mineola High School’s eighth- and ninth-graders will present the story, in which the Fa family ancestors take you back to ancient China where Mulan (Erin Talty) is to meet the Matchmaker (Ana Pereira) and bring “Honor to Us All.” A nervous Mulan ruins the ceremony. During this time, Shan-Yu (Jameson Grenados) and the Huns are preparing to attack China.

 

Mushu (Raquel Galan), the funny sidekick sent by the Ancestors, watches over Mulan as she runs away and joins the army disguised as a boy in her father’s armor. Little does she know that meeting Captain Shang (Zachary Sloan), and enduring the events to follow, will change history.  

 

“The drama department has gone to great lengths to create a production that looks as rich as its setting,” said Joseph Owens, acting supervisor of fine and performing arts in Mineola. “The musical numbers, choreography, gorgeous set and beautiful costumes will immediately draw the audience into the culture of ancient China.”

 

Tickets are $9 in advance by calling the fine arts office at 516-237-2625 or $10 at the door in Mineola High School at 10 Armstrong Rd. in Garden City Park. Tickets for children 10 and under are $5.

Sports

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.

 

With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang.  After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

FC Mineola Stumbles Against Hota

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6.  Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance.  Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
