Event Information

With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR.is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty. Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical 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. When Daniel is returned to his people, 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. Equally effective regardless of your cast size, Once on This Island JR. features minimal, though colorful, sets and costumes that will capture your audiences’ imaginations. Creative movement is also part of the show's style, calling upon performers to portray trees, wild animals and even a fierce rainstorm.
