Moana Jr presented by Newnan Academy of Theatre Arts
Newnan Academy of Theater Arts presents Disney's Moana Jr! The 2022 production.
Moana is a celebration of the rich stories of Oceania and is based on the beliefs and cultures of real
people. In creating the original film, the producers at Disney Animation formed an Oceanic Trust.
This group of anthropologists, cultural practitioners, historians, linguists, and choreographers from
islands including Samoa, Tahiti, Mo’orea, and Fiji was integral in the creation of the film, providing
feedback and notes on character design, song lyrics, and the depiction of culture onscreen. This
respect and careful attention to detail was carried forward in the creation of Moana JR for the
stage. Each production of the show is supplied with a Director’s Guide, a Pronunciation Guide,
and Choreography Video demonstrations, providing information, research, and best practices for
respectfully celebrating Oceanic culture.
