Each year, Upper School students have a choice for the winter: Sports or song? This year, students that chose "song" began their journey into the production of Moana Jr. the Musical!
Students bustled with energy over the past few months, working together to create a fantastic production as they took on the challenge of bringing the magical world of Moana to life on stage.
Students were involved in every aspect of production, from choreography and set design to costume creation and lighting. They worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was perfect, and their hard work paid off in the end! The result was an exciting and vibrant show that delighted our community.
“I’m so proud of the leadership demonstrated by our Upper School performers and producers,” said Math Teacher Laura Rose, who with Spanish Teacher Chantal Rivers and Music Director Sebastian Guerrero, advised and directed the group. “We had 60 students spanning grades 5-8 who signed up to do this show, and from acting to set design to choreography to tech to costumes—everyone brought their full selves to producing this show.”
Watching the students perform was a true joy, as they brought a sense of energy and enthusiasm to the stage that was truly infectious. They captured the essence of the characters perfectly, from Moana's determination and bravery, to Maui's swagger and humor.
In the end, the production of Moana Jr. the Musical was a true testament to the talent and dedication of the students involved. They showed that anything is possible with hard work, passion, and a little creativity!
