Amelie Necaise and Annalize Hoeg, who both play Moana on different shows, joined us on Good Morning Mississippi to talk about the production. It’s a coming-of-age story that follows strong-willed Moana as she sails across the Pacific to save her village and uncover the truth about her heritage.

Moana, Jr. opens Friday and continues through Sunday at the Hancock Performing Arts Center. Here with details are Amelie Necaise and Annalize Hoeg.

The summer show is always a fun event for the whole family and might inspire your child to audition for the next production.
