CCYT Moana JR. Audition Workshop Opportunities

            The Clinton County Youth Theatre is excited to announce that their next show will be Disney’s Moana JR. In anticipation of the musical, the Frankfort Community Public Library is holding two audition workshop opportunities. The workshops are on Saturday, March 4 and 5, from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in Skanta Theatre. The event is free and open to Clinton County youth ages 5-18. Space is limited and registration is required, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. Attendees can expect to learn how to prepare for the auditions, what the director is looking for, and how the audition process will work. Each audition workshop is single event so attendees do not need to sign up for both. Actors will be able to audition at the workshop. To prepare for the workshops attendees may pick up audition packets at the Teen Desk in the FCPL Teen Department. Click here to register for either Saturday or Sunday.

            Moana JR. is an adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film, and features all the beloved songs from the movie, including “How Far I’ll Go”, “Shiny”, and “You’re Welcome.” Moana is coming-of-age story and follows the title character as she sets sail across the Pacific! Youth Theater Supervisor, Kennedy Houser states, “I am so excited to bring Moana Jr. to life. It’s a fun and educational story for children of all ages!” The Summer Musical is Houser’s second time leading a show with Clinton County Youth Theatre. The Winter Play in January 2023, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, boasted a cast of more thirty young people. The show featured a colorful set, dynamic costumes, and impressive talent. CCYT held four nearly sold out performances of Sideways. Now, we are excited for the youth to be back on the stage in Skanta with our production of Moana Jr with show dates of Thurs.-Sat., June 22-24, 2023!

Productions like Moana Jr. and Sideways Stories are worthwhile for everyone in our community and expensive to conduct. Sponsorships from local businesses are what make Clinton County Youth Theatre possible.  Since our last production included four sold-out performances, sponsors with CCYT benefit from a huge audience exposed to their business. CCYT’s 2023 Executive Producer Gem City Junction, and the Friends of the Frankfort Community Public Library support Sideways Stories of Wayside School and Moana Jr. However, we still need more support to make our show happen. This year, sponsors may choose from all-new tiers that come with show merchandise and exposure on CCYT and Frankfort Community Public Library social media. To learn more about the advantages of sponsoring the show or for more information about the audition worships please contact Rachel Milburn at or call (765)654-8746 ext. 1117.

Disney’s MOANA JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
