Once On This Island

Book & Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty

Directed by Amanda Poulson, Director & Choreographer; Jamie Pitt, Music Director; Laurie Fellenz, Orchestra Conductor

This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale "The Little Mermaid" sings and dances the story of Ti Moune, the peasant girl who rescues, nurses and falls in love with Daniel, a boy from a wealthy family. When Daniel is returned to his people, the gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death. The show's catchy, contemporary, and Caribbean-flavored score by the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty ("Ragtime" and the animated film "Anastasia") includes tender ballads and rousing celebratory numbers.
