Watch the world of Moana brought to life by young, local performers in this musical adaptation of the hit Disney film.

Thrilling and heart-warming, this coming of age story follows strong-willed Moana as she sets sail across the pacific to save her village and discover the truth about her heritage – including an adventure with legendary demigod Maui!

Fun for the whole family, Disney’s Moana JR. features all your favourite songs from the movie, including How Far I’ll Go, Shiny and You’re Welcome.

"This stage adaptation for young people is an even more satisfying musical than the movie it's based on."
