Nov. 15-17: HMS Musical Production of "Once on this Island"
The Hampton Middle School Theater Department presents its fall musical production of “Once on this Island,” running November 15-17.
With its poignant story and catchy, Caribbean-flavored score, “Once on this Island” 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 of Ahrens and Flaherty.
Through almost nonstop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel Beauxhomme, 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.
HMS student Kathleen Milon stars in the role of Ti Moune, with Brooks Brady as Daniel Beauxhomme.
Opening night is Thursday, November 15 in the HMS Auditorium. Show time is 7 p.m. Additional performances will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 16 and 17, with a 1 p.m. matinee being offered on Saturday, Nov. 17 only.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for students when reserved in advance, and $7 for adults and $6 for students for general admission. Tickets are available online here.
