      This season we will be producing ONCE ON THIS ISLAND from the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (SEUSSICAL, RAGTIME, ANASTASIA). This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, garnered eight Tony nominations for its original Broadway run, including Best Musical, Book and Score. The production recently had a revival on Broadway to great reviews. ONCE ON THIS ISLAND follows Ti Moune, a peasant girl, who 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. Sponsors and full casting TBA soon!
