2013 Take Part Summer Festival
Once On This Island
After the massive successes of Guys And Dolls and Little Shop Of Horrors, we're already looking forward to the macrobert 2013 Take Part Summer Festiva l- Once On This Island, a theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairytale The Little Mermaid.
In an almost non-stop song and dance, the show 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 to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death.
Working with a professional team of musical theatre practicioners, you will benefit from their talent and expertise throughout the rehearsal process before performing on the main house stage.
Whether you're looking for a summer of Caribbean-infused fun or are interested in training in the arts in the future, this is the project for you.
