***IMPORTANT***

Hello!

We will have less rehearsal time than usual. That being said, we are looking at a much more intense rehearsal/production schedule. Conflicts will be strongly taken into consideration when casting, as well as past unexcused absences (for past cast members). Additionally, any unplanned/unapproved conflicts for this next production will be treated seriously.

 

Rehearsals may be held on: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays

…It is not likely your child would have rehearsals on every one of these days, but there is a possibility.

 

Please take note:

 

  • If cast, conflicts listed on your audition paper will be accepted. ADDITIONAL conflicts will not be accepted.
  • When you do have a conflict, it is your responsibility to catch up outside of rehearsal, preferably before your next scheduled rehearsal. (Past cast members: It will be taken into consideration whether you have complied with this in the past.)
  • Arriving late/leaving early also is also a conflict.

 

:) If you have any questions, please contact Heather in ADVANCE: bcctstages@comcast.net

Grades 8 - 12: Girls:

“How Far I’ll Go”

Moana: And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me

And let me know…what’s beyond that line? Will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea, it calls me!

And no one knows how far it goes!

If the wind I may sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I’ll know how far I’ll go!

 

 

Tamatoa: Well Tamatoa hasn’t always been this glam.

I was a drab little crab once.

Now I know I can be happy as a clam

Because I’m beautiful, baby.

Did your granny say, “Listen to your heart.

Be who you are on the inside”?

I need three words to tear her argument apart:

“Your granny lied.” I’d rather be

Shiny! Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck,

Scrub the deck and make it look shiny!

I will sparkle like a wealthy woman’s neck…

Just a sec, don’tcha know

 

 

“Where You Are” Part 2

Sina: We make our nets from the fibers.

The water is sweet inside!

We use the leaves to build fires.

And cook up the meat inside.

Consider the coconuts. The trunks and the leaves…

The island gives us what we need.

 

—————————————————————————————-

Grades 8 - 12: Boys:

 

“You’re Welcome”

Maui: I see what’s happening. Yeah.

You’re face to face with greatness and it’s strange.

You don’t even know how you feel; it’s adorable.

Well it’s nice to see that humans never change.

Open your eyes, let’s begin.

Yes, it’s really me, it’s Maui, breath it in.

I know it’s a lot: the hair, the bod,

When you’re staring at a demigod.

What can I say except “you’re welcome”?

For the tides, the sun, the sky?

Hey, it’s okay, it’s okay; you’re welcome.

I’m just an ordinary demi-guy.

 

 

 

“Where You Are” Part 1

Tui: Moana! Make way! Make way!

Moana, it’s time you knew the village of Motunui is all you need

———

Don’t walk away. Moana stay on the ground now.

Our people will need a chief and there you are.

There comes a day when you’re gonna look around

And realize happiness is where you are.

 

 

 

***Tamatoa is a FEMALE Character***

Tamatoa: Well Tamatoa hasn’t always been this glam.

I was a drab little crab once.

Now I know I can be happy as a clam

Because I’m beautiful, baby.

Did your granny say, “Listen to your heart.

Be who you are on the inside”?

I need three words to tear her argument apart:

“Your granny lied.” I’d rather be

Shiny! Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck,

Scrub the deck and make it look shiny!

I will sparkle like a wealthy woman’s neck…

Just a sec, don’tcha know

 

—————————————————————————————-

 

Grades 3 - 7:

 

Hey, it’s your day to say “you’re welcome!”

‘Cause I’m gonna need that boat.

I’m sailing away, away, you’re welcome.

‘Cause Maui can do everything but float!

You’re welcome!

You’re welcome!

 

—————————————————————————————-

Moana Callback:

 

“Know Who You Are”

Moana: I have crossed the horizon to find you.

I know your name.

They have stolen the heart from inside you.

But this does not define you.

This is not who you are.

You know who you are.

 

 

 "Song Of The Ancestors/I Am Moana"

Moana: And the call isn’t out there at all, it’s inside me.

It’s like the tide, always falling and rising.

I will carry you here in my heart, you remind me

That come what may, I know the way.

I am Moana.

 

SIDE1:

Moana: What’s your problem? Are…you afraid? You’re afraid of the Heart, aren’t

              you?

Maui: That is not a heart, it is a curse. Get it away from me.

Moana (teasing, holding it closer to Maui): Get this away?

Maui: Stop that. I will smite you. You wanna get smote?

(Moana and Maui both make a confused face.)

Moana: “Smote”?

Maui: Smoten?

Moana: “Smoten”?

Maui: Ugh. Listen, that thing doesn’t give you power to create life. It’s a homing

          beacon of death. I’m not going on mission impossible with some “mortal”. End

          of discussion.

Moana: You’d be a hero. That’s what you’re all about, right?

Maui: I am a hero.

Moana: Maybe you were…but now you’re just the guy who stole the Heart of Te Fiti…

              the guy who cursed the world. You’re no one’s hero.

Maui: No one?

Moana: But, return the Heart, save the world? You’d be everyone’s hero. (like a

              stadium) Maui! Maui! Maui! You’re so amazing.

Maui (momentarily enjoys the pep talk, then…): Ugh. Fine.

Moana: Really?

Maui: First, we get my hook.

Moana: Then save the world. Deal?

Maui: Deal.

 —————————————————————————————-

 SIDE 2: 

(Maui begins to sail off, leaving Moana on the island.)

Moana: Hey! You can’t leave me here! (turns to ocean) Uh…Ocean? A little help?

(Ocean Ensemble carries Moana to the canoe)

Maui: What the heck?

Moana: The ocean is a friend of mine.

Maui: Look, little girl - and the ocean - there’s no way I’m going to Te Fiti. I need to get

          my hook!

Moana: Your hook?

Maui: Um. Yes. I wasn’t exactly hanging out on that island for fun. When Te Ka and I

          fought, I lost my hook and got trapped there.

Moana: I am Moana of Motunui. This is my canoe and I am going to get us to Te Fiti,

              so you can put it back. Thank you. (mocking Maui) “YOU’RE WELCOME.”

(Moana holds out the Heart to Maui)

Maui: You got a little too much salt water in your ears? Without my hook, I can’t

          shapeshift, and I certainly can’t take on Te Ka.

(Maui grabs the Heart and throws it out far.

Ocean ensemble catches the Heart and puts it back in Moana’s hand.)

Maui: All right, I’m out. I’m swimming back to the island. Maybe in another thousand

        years, someone else will come who’s a little less…

(Maui gestures with frustration to all of Moana.)

Maui Callback:

 

Lyrics:

"You're Welcome"

*I can’t count all the things that I’ve done

The places I’ve seen, the battles I’ve won!

Look where I’ve been, I make everything happen!

Look at that mean mini Maui just ticket-y tappin’

Heh - heh - heh - heh - heh - heh - Hey!

 

Well, anyway, let me say “you’re welcome”

For the wonderful world you know.

Hey it’s okay, it’s okay, you’re welcome.

We’ll come to think of it, I gotta go.

Hey, it’s your day to say “you’re welcome!”

‘Cause I’m gonna need that boat.

I’m sailing away, away, you’re welcome.

‘Cause Maui can do everything but float!

You’re welcome! You’re welcome!

And thank you!

 

 

SIDE 1:

Maui: Hey, nice boat. Mind if I take it for a little spin? Thanks.

Moana: Hey! That’s mine! Wait…Are you Maui? Shapeshifter? Demigod of the wind

              and sea? I am Moana of -

Maui: Hero of men.

Moana: What?

Maui: Maui, shapeshifter, demigod of the wind and sea, hero of men -

Moana: Uh. I am Mo-

Maui: Sorry, sorry. Men and women. Maui is a hero to all. I interrupted. From the top…

Moana: Hold on. I’m here to -

Maui: Of course. Maui always has time for his fans.

Moana: I’m not your fan! I’m here ‘cause you stole the Heart of Te Fiti! And you will

             board my boat, sail across the sea, and put it back!

Maui: Um, it almost sounds like you don’t like me, which is impossible ‘cause I got

          stuck here for a thousand years trying to get the Heart for you mortals. So what I

          believe you were trying to say…is “thank you”.

Moana: Thank you?

Maui: You’re welcome.

 

SIDE 2:

(Maui begins to sail off, leaving Moana on the island.)

Moana: Hey! You can’t leave me here! (turns to ocean) Uh…Ocean? A little help?

Gramma Tala Callback:

 

Lyrics:

“Song Of The Ancestors”

Gramma Tala: The people you love will change you.

The things you have learned will guide you.

And nothing on earth can silence

The quiet voice still inside you.

And when that voice starts to whisper,

“Moana, you’ve come so far. Moana, listen…”

Do you know who you are?

 

Side:

Moana: Gramma. Are you gonna tell my dad I crashed the canoe?

Gramma Tala: I’m his mom. I don’t have to tell him anything.

Moana: He’s right. It’s time to keep my feet on the ground and stay in the village.

Gramma Tala: If that’s what you want…go on then.

Moana (suspicious): Why are you acting weird?

Gramma Tala: I’m the village crazy lady. That’s my job.

Moana: If there’s something you want to tell me, just tell me.

Gramma Tala: Moana, you’ve been told all our people’s stories…but one…Do you

                        really think our ancestors only stayed within the reef?

Moana: We were voyagers?

Gramma Tala: You better believe it.

Moana: Why’d we stop?

Gramma Tala: The ancient chiefs forbade voyaging to protect our people from Te Ka.

                         But now Te Ka’s darkness had spread…The stories are real. And so is

                         the Heart of Te Fiti. (Gramma Tala points to Moana’s necklace.)

Moana: This is the heart of Te Fiti?

Gramma Tala: You carry it with you. The ocean chose you.

 

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 Tamatoa Callback:

Side:

Tamatoa: Ooo-hoo-hoo, what have we here?…Wait a minute! Eww, it’s a human! What

                 are you doing down here? In the Realm of Monsters?

 

Moana: We mortals have heard the tale of the crab who became a legend…and I need

              to know how you…became so…crab…ulous…?

 

Tamatoa: Are you just trying to get me to talk about myself? Because if you are…I will

                 gladly do so!

 

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Tui Callback:

Side:

Moana: We could fish beyond the reef.

(Villagers hush and stare at Moana. After a moment…)

Tui: No one goes beyond the reef.

Moana: I know, but if there are no fish in the lagoon, there’s a whole ocean.

Tui: We have one rule. A rule that keeps us safe.

Moana: An old rule when there were fish.

Tui: There’s nothing beyond the reef but danger, storms, and rough seas.

Moana: We don’t know what’s out there.

Tui: No one goes beyond the reef!

 

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Sina Callback:

Sina: He’s hard on you because -

Moana: - because he doesn’t get me.

Sina: Because he was you - drawn to the ocean. He and his best friend sailed past the

         reef, where waves like mountains crashed down, overturning their canoe. Your

         dad couldn’t save him. He’s hoping he can save you. (hugs Moana) Sometimes

         what we wish we could do…is not meant to be.

Lyrics:

"Where You Are"

We make our nets from the fibers

The water is sweet inside.

We use the leaves to build fires.

And cook up the meat inside.

 

Side:

Hei Hei/Pua:

Hei Hei: Hey-Hey-Hey, Moana!

(Pua looks worried)

Moana: What’s wrong?

Pua: It’s the coconuts. They’re black.

Moana: Black? I’ve never seen that before.

(Gramma Tala enters. Moana, Pua and Hei Hei don’t notice her.)

Hei Hei: Hey-hey-hey, Moana! Have you ever seen a purple coconut?

Moana/Pua: No, Hei Hei.

Hei Hei: Okay, just checking.

Pua: What could have caused this?

Gramma Tala: I know why the coconuts are black.

Pua/Hei Hei: Why?

Gramma Tala: You three haven’t been listening to my stories.

Hei Hei: No offense Gramma Tala, but you’re stories are really boring -

Pua: Hei Hei!

Hei Hei: I mean…confusing!

Gramma Tala: (It’s) Te Ka’s poison…And she won’t stop until we’re all devoured by the

                         blood-thirsty jaws of inescapable death!

Pua/Hei Hei: AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
