Calling All Voyagers & Demigods!

Award-winning Dramacube Productions are looking for children aged 8-12 years to join the cast of Moana JR in Twickenham, Hampton Hill or Walton on Thames.

We are thrilled to have secured Disney’s full scale Moana Jr as our Summer Term production!
Courage, empathy and camaraderie are all central themes to this charming story….and we will be channelling this into our rehearsals as we set sail for production week.
Each of our five talented tribes (casts) will rehearse weekly with our Musical Theatre Chiefs (Directors & Choreographers) and will perform two full scale productions at Hampton Hill Theatre.

This will be a special journey for everyone where – like Moana and Maui – they will make new friendships, challenge themselves, learn to collaborate and be inspired.

This feel good summer show will be filled with Musical Theatre and magic so journey with us as we whisk you away to find the Heart of Te Fiti.

Summer Term starts w/c 20th April with final performances on 29th June – 1st July at Hampton Hill Theatre.

Find out more about our Walton on Thames, Twickenham or Hampton Hill casts below.

Rehearsals & Casting

Weekly rehearsals for Moana JR are led by our professional Musical Theatre team in Hampton Hill, Twickenham & Walton on Thames.

Whilst rehearsing songs, scenes and routines, children will also learn about stage direction, characterisation and the importance of supporting ensemble.

Our audition process is supportive and will ensure every child has a part to play in the final production.

Weeks 1-3: Workshops & Auditions

Our Musical Theatre team will help young performers explore and learn the story, characters, songs and routines in our workshop auditions. Young performers are asked to list the three parts they’d like to audition for and one part they definitely don’t want to play.

Week 4: Casting Announced

The Director will aim to cast every child in a role they’d like to play and that stretches their development. Everyone will have lines, songs and routines to learn for the show. We start rehearsals with our BIG opening number so the whole cast are involved and working together.

Week 4 to showtime! The cast will come together for 2.5 hours per week, a 4-hour weekend rehearsal and a full tech & dress rehearsal (on stage) culminating in 2 full scale performances with our other casts at Hampton Hill Theatre.

Cast sizes vary depending on the number of roles available and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis so don’t miss out – enrol today! (see full terms & conditions).

Disney’s Moana Jr

Dramacube are delighted to present Disney’s Moana Jr officially licenced from Musical Theatre International.

“What have you done to my son? Our shy, quiet introverted boy comes out head held high, full of joy, energy and confidence” Amy

Drama accelerates the social and educational development of children. Auditioning for a part and performing on stage, builds resilience and confidence. Friendships and teamwork are nurtured through the process of supporting each other. Role play inspires creativity, empathy and the skill of resolving conflict. These experiences run through every Dramacube rehearsal, production and workshop as we share with children the magic of the performing arts through acting, singing and dancing..
