Disney’s Moana JR. is this year’s Children’s Enrichment Summer Camp taking place at The Cedartown Performing Arts Center from June 7 to 11, and June 14 to 18 with a public performance set for June 18 at 6 p.m.

The 60-minute musical adventure, designed for young performers, is based on the 2016 Disney film Moana. The Children’s Enrichment program continues to be led by McCall Pirkle.

“We’re so excited to be able to move forward with our 2021 Children’s Enrichment Summer Camp. Last year we ultimately had to do a pre-recorded livestream performance with a limited number of children. This year has been unlike any other we have experienced in recent times, but we must continue to push forward together” said facility director Oscar Guzman.

He emphasized that this year is largely possible due to a project grant awarded to the program by The Georgia Council for the Arts. The team is hopeful they can still raise the matching funds.
