Disney’s Moana Jr. (Grades PreK-12)

Students entering Grades 3 through 12 this school year: Join us for our second Youth Theatre Companies with our first fully produced Companies show: Disney’s Moana Jr.! This program will have an in-person option as well as a virtual option, so your performer can participate regardless of your family’s needs!

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, Disney’s Moana Jr. is sure to bring out the hero within each of us.

CFCArts is a Gardiner Scholarship provider, and the Gardiner Scholarship can be used to cover program tuition! CFCArts scholarships are also available.
