Moana the Musical Jr.

The Show

In April 2022. ATC launched our next Junior production - Moana the Musical Jr. This saw 48 people aged 7 to 18 audition for roles! The rehearsal process was tricky due to the amount of people but also because of the trough musical numbers - often in a different language. The cast rose to the occasion though and, in November 2022, ATC staged three sell out performances of Moana. The feedback and response was overwhelming with standing ovations at every performance.


Disney’s Moana JR. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film, bringing the adventures of Moana and her village of Motunui to life onstage. Moana JR. features all the beloved songs from the film, written by Tony®, GRAMMY, Emmy, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i, and Mark Mancina, including “How Far I’ll Go,” “Shiny,” and “You’re Welcome.”

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. With empowering messages of bravery and selflessness, Moana JR. is sure to bring out the hero within each of us
