Once On This Island Jr.
March 22, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
One event on March 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm
With a fourth nor’easter on the way this week, it’s time to be transported to the tropics through the magic of the Wellesley Middle School’s performance of “Once on This Island Jr.”
The Tony-nominated hit musical has returned to Broadway as well as our local stage with approximately 100 students participating in acting and technical roles.
“Once on This Island Jr.” is the mystical story of a poor, peasant girl named Ti Moune who lives on an island in the French Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea. She falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island but is sent on a journey by the gods of the island. The gods test Ti Moune by forcing her to choose between love and death.
This show is family-friendly and suitable for all ages. General admission tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door. $14 Adults/ $8 Students/Seniors. Auditorium entrance is at the rear of the building.
