Save the date for SJND's annual Spring Musical at the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts in Oakland! SJND students will once again dazzle audiences, this year with their performance of Once On This Island.
Once On This Island (2018 Tony- Best Revival of a Musical) tells the story of an orphaned peasant girl, Ti Moune, who rescues an injured wealthy boy from the other side of the island. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the Gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. On a Caribbean island divided by color, class, religion and gender, Ti Moune's determination and capacity to love attempts to break the wall that separates the societies and unite them. A Caribbean adaptation of The Little Mermaid, Once On This Island will touch audiences of all ages.
