Once On This Island JR.

Once On This Island JR.
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 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.

Questions & Answers

A Part of us

July 21, 2011
Currently doing a production of OOTI jr. It seems to me that the emotional weight of the song A Part of Us has been substantially lessened by the cuts from the original score, and it makes the staging less able to show it as well (The passing of Timoune amongst the gods in the original is kind of glossed over) Any suggestions as to how effectively stage the song and maintain the emotional as the jr show is written? ( The original song brings a lump to my throught every time I hear it!)
