Once On This Island Jr.
By Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
Capilano Mall will be home to a “pop up” theatre May 24 – 26 in unit 87 to feature the musical production of Broadway’s Once On This Island produced by URP Event Production and Creative Services. This musical will be performed by some of the North Shore's finest young talent including many students from Capilano University's highly respected Musical Theatre Program.
Once On This Island is a Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid that garnered eight Tony nominations for its Broadway run. Told entirely in song, it is 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 to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred, and death.
