Middletown Area Middle School musical ‘Once on This Island Jr.’ will be performed this weekend

Posted

The Middletown Area Middle School musical “Once on This Island Jr.” will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15 and Saturday, Dec. 16, as well as 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17.

The musical has a Caribbean-flavored score and is an original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale “The Little Mermaid,” telling 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.

Because the show is set on a Caribbean island and has a storm motif, MAMS will be donating all profits to hurricane relief. Adults are $8 and students/children are $5.
