THE OCEAN IS CALLING!

SPOTLIGHT ON FALL PRODUCTION CLASS
Open enrollment for Disney's MOANA (Junior Edition) will take place from August 30-Septembe 18, and the class begins on September 30, with performances December 2-5, 2021 at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse.

From Disney and the creator of HAMILTON... This thrilling and heartwarming coming-of-age story follows the strong-willed Moana as she sets sail across the Pacific to save her village and discover the truth about her heritage. Moana and the legendary demigod Maui embark on an epic journey of self-discovery and camaraderie as both learn to harness the power that lies within. Celebrating the rich history of Oceania and based on the beliefs and cultures of the people of the Pacific Islands, Moana was developed in collaboration with an Oceanic Trust – a group of anthropologists, cultural practitioners, historians, linguists, and choreographers from the Pacific Islands. The same respect and attention to detail used to develop the film was carried forward in the creation of this stage adaptation, with our production directed by Jared Watson, choreograped by Kaitlyn Bundrick-Brown, and musical direction provided by Seth Taylor.
