Moana’s adventures come to life onstage August 26-28 at the Highline Performing Arts Center in Burien. Disney’s “Moana JR.” is a musical adaptation of the hit Disney animated film, with music and lyrics co-written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
"Moana, JR." is a one-act musical and heartwarming coming-of-age story that follows the strong-willed Moana as she sets sail across the Pacific to save her village of Motonui and discover the truth about her heritage.
Celebrating the rich history of Oceania and based on the beliefs and cultures of the people of the Pacific Islands, “Moana JR.” was developed in collaboration with an Oceanic Trust – a group of anthropologists, cultural practitioners, historians, linguists, and choreographers from the Pacific Islands. The same respect and attention to detail used to develop the film was carried forward in the creation of this stage adaption.
Choreographed by Kumu Hula Mokihana Melendez and directed by Hawaii-native Kathleen Edwards, this show is open to all ages. Tickets are available now at www.hi-liners.org." (Promo Copy)
