Maui and the Genie
Maui is always in trouble but he knows he is destined to be a great leader. His friends Hine and Kiwi, (a New Zealand Native flightless bird), although supportive have seen very little evidence of his ‘greatness’ as Maui appears to be nothing but trouble. His family are ashamed of him other than his Grandmother who has great faith in him. Maui is joined by a fictitious Genie from Persia who attempts to convince us that he is someone very important and powerful but the truth is later revealed.
This musical show is full of comedy and fun as the Genie and Maui try to make their way in life. This show is approximately 100 minutes long and has 20-22 speaking parts and 4 leading roles. The cast size is suitable for 30+ with many opportunities for dancers and chorus members.

Wow! What an incredible stage experience we were able to give the students of Waikaka School due to Monica’s ‘Maui and the Genie’ show. Not only is it a journey about trust and friendship, personal belief and change, but it also incorporates so many catchy songs which the students loved learning. Directing this show was an enjoyable experience; I was able to take this story and conjure up all sorts of creative scenes, props, and movements for our young thespians. Monica’s expertise was only ever a phone call or message away, and we appreciated the extra effort taken to remaster soundtracks and the changes she made in the script. It was an incredible pleasure to work with Monica. We were lucky enough that she was able to travel south to watch our interpretation of her Maui story, the children got a kick out of meeting the writer and loved hearing her positive feedback.
Absolutely Recommend Monica Moore Productions, Linda Miller - Teacher and Director
Thank you so much Monica for everything and for creating such a wonderful production that the cast and the audiences LOVED so much. I loved the experience I had in this production and the faith that Monica had in me to play a lead role even though I had not been on stage before. Being part of this amazing production made me realise the passion and the talent I have for performing arts. High School Blues opened doors for me as I have gone on to study Performing Arts at tertiary level. High School Blues will always be with me and is the reason why I’m the person I am today. This show gave me the opportunity to find something that I loved doing. I found a whole new world.

The children have loved every minute Monica! Being in the Great Adventure has given me the opportunity to showcase my God given talents. I am honoured that I was a part of something special, something I’ve never tried before. It’s changed my life, it’s taught me that my peers will be with me throughout the show knowing we have have each other’s backs. This has been my first ever professional show. The experience of being in front of a supportive audience, being able to work together as a family to get through tough times. I’d like to thank the Director of it all Monica for making it all possible for us young talented students. We are truly blessed and thankful for your presence.
