BONUS 2021 MUSICAL

Once Island 3x6 Banner.jpg

With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is an adaptation of the fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and 2018 Tony award winner for Best Revival of a Broadway musical.

With nearly non-stop song and dance, Once On This Island JR. follows Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl, in search of her place in the world and willingness to risk it all for love.  Guided by the four mighty island gods, Ti Moune's journey tests the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and even death.

 

This is the production that we were in the midst of when the pandemic hit, so we asked these families to consider a new commitment to the 2021 version of this musical.  With their blessing, we have filled out this new cast to feature 32 student actors. Cast & Crew are excited to resume rehearsals.

 

While maintaining our reputation for high quality productions, we will ultimately present FIVE 90-minute performances within our beautiful 2,000 sq. ft. studio at 910 Washington St in downtown Manitowoc.  Each performance will offer limited in-house seating and a live streaming option.
