Disney's Moana JR
About the Show - Disney's Moana Jr. is the perfect introduction to high quality theater for young audiences while keeping Disney connoisseurs of all ages entertained. This action packed, 90 minute production includes every song from the 2016 animated film including; How Far You'll Go (Moana), You're Welcome, and Shiny!
Filled with ancient Polynesian traditions and mythology, Disney's Moana Jr. is an uplifting, coming-of-age story that centers around an island dwelling community who no longer venture to the sea - until Moana is tasked by her grandmother to return a stone (known as the Heart of the Te Fiti) back to its rightful home. Moana teams up with Maui (a Polynesian trickster and demigod) and the spirit of the ocean, to keep evil at bay by venturing across the sea.
Disney's Moana Jr. features a large cast of actors, colorful costumes, and a self-gliding canoe which brings this wayfinding adventure to life. This production is rated G and runs approx. 1.5 hours with a 15 min. intermission.
Actors Age 5 - 18 are required to audition and are NOT guaranteed a role. Actors MUST register in order to audition. There are a limited number of audition spots available for each night, so early registration is recommended. Once registration is filled, a wait-list will be formed. No prior stage experience is required.
This is a large scale musical with roles for (approx.) 100 - 180 participants pending social distancing requirements. (At this time, our licensing contract does NOT permit actors over the age of 18 to audition. Should this change, we will update the information and send an email to those on the CCT mailing list.)

(CCT will ask actors to fill out their availability on a calendar at their audition (or in advance). Casting priority will be given to actors who have the most availability to rehearse.
