Adapted from the celebrated Broadway musical, this rousing Calypso-flavored tale follows one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice. With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is the theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersens popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty. This full-hearted musical is non-stop sing-and-dance, and tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. Daniel returns to his people, and the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred, and even death. Directed by Annamarie Arens and Sheila Twiggs. Recommended for ages 5+.
