Once On This Island

Junior Rising Stars presents:

Once on This Island

An engaging, Caribbean-flavored musical set on an unnamed island in the French Antilles. The story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love above her class, is told around a fire by a group of Caribbean peasants as they wait out a terrible storm. Once on This Island uses the tradition of storytelling to pass down history, values and insight from one generation to the next. The result is a lesson to be passed along for generations to come. With the gods looking over her, Ti Mounes journey of unrequited love comes to prove that the power of love is stronger than the power of death. Ti Mounes courage and spirit prove that love can withstand the storm, cross the Earth, and survive even in the face of death. With rhythms of the Caribbean Islands, this show will be a favorite of performers and audiences alike!

Once on This Island JR is the authorized young performers edition of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flahertys story of “two worlds, never meant to meet,” where the power of love is proven to conquer the power of death a lesson well told for generations to come.
