Wow! One day more of camp. One more day of Once on This Island Jr. One day more of Summer by the CCC 2018! We’ve come such a long way. We started off this summer with Aristocats Kids. We had so much fun hanging out with Thomas O’Malley and all of his friends. Soon, we joined Horton in the Jungle of Nool with Seussical Kids. Now we’re wrapping up our summer with the story of Ti Moune and Daniel in Once on This Island Jr. Our summer has been filled with laughs, love, music, dance, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Once on This Island Jr. is about a young peasant girl named Ti Moune. Ti Moune lives on an island where civilization is divided between the peasants and the rich. Found in a tree after a hurricane as a young girl, she is taken in by TonTon Julian and Mama Euralie. The two act as her parents and raise her, but Ti Moune always wondered why the gods kept her alive during the hurricane. Once Ti Moune grows up she is determined to figure out why. Ti Moune lives her life as a peasant and prays to the gods. On the other side of the island, the rich live lavish lives and stay away from the poor. But Ti Moune was always fascinated by these wealthy people. One day, a boy named Daniel crashes his car on the poor side of the island. Ti Moune takes him in and cares for him. Eventually, his family comes to take him back home. But, since Ti Moune has feelings for Daniel, she follows them back to their expensive home. The gods lead her through her journey in search of Daniel’s love, for they want to see if love can conquer death. Once on This Island Jr. is a phenomenal show that the audience will definitely enjoy!
Today, our campers were definitely kept busy. We did two complete runs of our show, both including lights and microphones. One of our runs even included costumes! Our show really grown since we first started and it is in great shape. Our detailed set really sets the scene for our show. Our performers shine in their costumes, made by staff member Gina Reed.
