ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, JR
Director Jessi Reed
Sautee Stars, our after-school children's theatre class,
presents Once on This Island, JR, written by Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty.
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.
