Students at the Los Gatos Youth Theatre summer camp, ages 8 to 17, will show off the acting, dance and voice skills they've learned with a production of the fun tropical musical Once on This Island Jr.
. Set in the French Antilles, this celebratory musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime
combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet
and The Little Mermaid
. The result is an exhilarating, calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from his doom. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit.
