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.


News

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”


Sports

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
