“Two-week Workshop” August 10-14 & 17-21, 2020
“Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface … Far beneath, in some cases.”
Moana, set on a fictional, pre-colonial island in the South Seas, works on every level, and has some of Disney’s best music ever. The Academy is very excited to be the first company to secure the performance rights to this fantastic musical, scored by the amazing Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator of “Hamilton”).
Moana is a 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 is sure to bring out the hero within each of us.
