“TCT is taking on the story of Moana like no one has ever seen before. This production will feature intricately made puppets and set pieces from Kevin Frisch of The Frisch Marionette Company and will be set on a dark stage using only blacklights to highlight the magic,” says Artistic Director, Roderick Justice.

TCT is working closely with Anna Rose Deleon Guerrero as the Cast Cultural Consultant. A native of Saipan, CNMI, and a proud actor of mixed AAPI heritage, Anna Rose has worked at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando.

Disney’s Moana Jr. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film, bringing the adventures of Moana and her village of Motunui to life onstage. Disney’s Moana Jr. features all the beloved songs from the film, written by Tony®, GRAMMY, Emmy, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i, and Mark Mancina, including “How Far I’ll Go,” “Shiny,” and “You’re Welcome.”

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.

Two Cincinnati icons have teamed up to celebrate the finale of the 2022-23 season with the Ocean Sunrise Smoothie! Inspired by TCT’s DISNEY’S MOANA JR., this special treat features Mango Sorbet, Strawberry, Banana, and Orange Juice with whipped cream and blue sprinkles.
