Guam - It's going to be another exciting production from local director Ernest Ochoco who has been working over the last couple of months to bring to the community Mulan, Jr.

With a cast and production crew of over 60 people, Ochoco is ready to put on another great show. Mulan Jr. hits the Father Duenas Memorial School Phoenix Center this week. He said, "The show is about a young girl who decides to help her father and save him from having to go to war by taking his place in ancient China, and in ancient China the penalty for impersonating a man is death. So she takes a huge risk in doing this. But its for the right reasons its to save her father.

"She goes on a journey with adventures friends and she brings honor to her family in the end."

The popular Disney cartoon will come to life starting Wednesday evening. You can expect to see your favorite characters like Ling, Chien-Po, and Shang played by FD seniors Dylan Montinola, Zachary San Nicolas, and Justin Dimla, respectively. :"Ling is pretty geeky and dorky dude and that's exactly what I am really awkward," Montinola explained. San Nicolas said of his role, "He likes to eat rice so I can relate to that and he's very, very Zen and very peaceful so I can relate to that."

Dimla added, "Captain Shang he has a tough exteriors but in the inside he's a really caring person and it really shows  how it develops through the whole story."

And of course the show couldn't be a show without Mulan - sharing the role Joanna Oh, Richel Mejares, Tyler Matanane and Kai Barrer. "I think hardest thing about playing Mulan is learning how to switch emotions between scenes because in one scene Mulan can be very happy and very perky and the other she can be very vulnerable," said Barrer.

Overall the cast and crew say they're excited to put on a great show for you to enjoy. Ochoco told KUAM News, "I think that Mulan is a great story because it helps people realize that women can do whatever they want to do and save anyone and b3e a hero just like everybody else."

Mulan Jr. Is scheduled for this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $7 for students.. They can be purchased at Bestseller Bookstore at GPO or the Micronesia Mall or at FD. You can call the school at 734-2261 for more information.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
