Last year, as we were considering what primary musical we’d like to perform, there was a great deal of sentiment among the NISC Players to select Moana.
For those who’ve seen the movie, you understand that this is an uplifting tale of a princess from a Pacific island who breaks from tradition, and sets out to save her island from imminent disaster.
Through her journey, Moana shows strength, courage, and determination to lead her people to safety. Along the way, she builds amazing relationships with others, and finds humor throughout her quest. We thought to ourselves, “What better story is there to tell to our community during these turbulent times?”
The irony in this story is that our cast very much has found themselves on a similar adventure to Moana. Throughout our journey, our performers have shown patience, flexibility, and open-mindedness towards our ultimate outcome.
Most importantly, these amazing individuals have shown a great deal of heart, a sense of humor, and care for one another as evidenced by the life-long relationships they have built. It is clear that no matter what obstacles they face, they will step-up and do everything they can to make sure nothing gets in the way of their performance - and most importantly, that they will do it together!
