Once On This Island Jr.

May 3, 2024 – May 5, 2024

Artists ReEnvisioning Tomorrow is thrilled to announce the production of Once On This Island Jr.!

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.

All shows will take place at the Romain Arts & Culture Center at 919 NE Jefferson in Peoria, IL.
