Annual PTA Play to Feature First Junior Production of Disney Hit

AMHERST – The Amherst PTA is casting Souhegan Valley’s most talented young thespians for its annual fundraising play. This year’s production is the organization’s first junior endeavor, Disney’s “Mulan Jr.”

Auditions for the hit Disney production took place January 2 & 3, 2019 at Clark Elementary School in Amherst for students grades 3 through 12 auditioning for over 20 speaking roles and in several large ensembles. Singing and dancing talent was sought but nothing was more critical than a love of entertaining!

When the show is cast, rehearsals will begin in January on Tuesday nights (6-8 p.m.) and Sunday afternoons (1-6 p.m.) at Clark School. In March, additional rehearsals will be held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday evenings. The show runs April 12-14 at Souhegan High School in Amherst.

Interested individuals can gather more information by visiting the PTA Play’s website, Additional volunteer opportunities for off-stage help, including set and costume designers, organizers, crafters, and many more, will be available after auditions.

The PTA play is the Amherst PTA’s premier fundraising event, generating thousands of dollars for crucial curriculum enrichment programs and teacher grants for Amherst schools. In 2018, over $17,000 was raised by the PTA’s production of “The Little Mermaid.”

The Amherst PTA will present Disney’s “Mulan Jr.” for the 67th edition of the its annual theatrical fundraiser. Show dates are April 12-14, 2019 at Amherst’s Souhegan High School. Tickets for the family-friendly, all-volunteer production are now on sale. For additional information, visit
