Youth Theater - Once on this Island, Jr.

By River's Edge Arts Alliance (other events)

2 Dates Through Aug 03, 2018

Come see what our Youth Theater has been working on this year (Grades 7 - 10).


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.

This is based on the Broadway Musical Once on This Island that recently won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical
