The Mauldin Cultural Center has always been a welcoming space for the performing arts. In 2017, the facility became home to the newly established Mauldin Youth Theatre as they produced their inaugural play, Disney’s The Lion King, JR. Now, our performing arts schedule is expanding to include more youth theatre, musical revues, and a community theatre for both adult and youth actors!

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous 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. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
