Disney’s Moana Jr

November 29-30

Main Stage Student Theatre Musical
Disney’s modern classic follows the strong-willed Moana as she and the demigod Maui set sail across the Pacific on an epic journey of self-discovery and camaraderie. With colorful characters drawn from the rich mythology of Oceania, an unforgettable score, and empowering messages of bravery and selflessness, Moana Jr. asks how far each of us will go to unlock the hero within.

How to Audition

Here are instructions on what to prepare and how to sign up for an audition:

  • At your audition, you will sing a song that you have prepared ahead of time. You need only sing approx. 1 minute of the song (or 16-32 measures).
  • You are encouraged to have your audition song memorized and to bring sheet music for the piano accompanist (a musician who will play the piano while you sing). You are welcome to sing a song from Moana if you like!
    1. If you can’t find sheet music, you can use a karaoke track. There are lots of options on YouTube! When you arrive, you can use our laptop to search for the correct karaoke track.
    2. If you’re stuck choosing a song, here are some suggestions:
      1. I Just Can’t Wait to be King from The Lion King
        1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XIdSNU446w
      2. For the First Time in Forever from Frozen
        1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmQ_n0rJ7JE
  • After you sing your prepared audition song, you will read a scene from the script, which you will be given at your audition. This is called a “cold read” and it’s meant to test how well you can dive in, be confident, and try something new with an unfamiliar scene.
  • You are encouraged to read the entire script before you audition so that you are familiar with the characters and the story. You may access the script HERE. If asked for a password, the password is:  membership
    1. Also, listen to the music! You can find the soundtrack of Moana on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, or other music streaming platforms.
  • Prior to your audition, please fill out this online AUDITION FORM.
  • Auditions will be held in the QCT Lab Theatre. Please enter through the QCT STAGE DOOR located off Kentucky street. This is the south side of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, and a ramp leads to the door labeled “STAGE DOOR.”
