The Upper School Musical at Far Hills Country Day School this year was Mulan Jr., the stage adaptation of the Disney film, Mulan, the story of a courageous young girl in ancient China. Prior to presenting the play on March 5 and 6, the cast visited Matheny and previewed some of the highlights for our students and patients.

The children’s dining room at Matheny was packed for the production, and the students enjoyed a brief visit after the performance. Far Hills is a pre-K thru eighth grade independent school in Far Hills, NJ. Many of its students regularly volunteer at Matheny.
