Cara Watson as Mulan.



Jordan Valley School students presented “Mulan” April 2-3 to packed audiences after rehearsing for only one month during music and speech classes. Jordan Valley students have severe multiple disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders, communication impairments, genetic disorders and syndromes, deaf–blindness and students who are extremely medically fragile.

The goal at Jordan Valley School is to improve the quality of life for students, age five to 22, and their families. One way staff and faculty do this is to include all 120 students in the musical, with each class performing a different scene. As students needed assistance from pushing wheelchairs to having an iPad help them with their lines, about 50 faculty and staff were on hand to help. It is the sixth show the school has produced by music director Caitlin Barney. In addition to “Mulan,” Jordan Valley students have performed in “High School Musical,” “Little Mermaid,” “Wizard of Oz,” “Peter Pan,” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
