Once on This Island

Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Music by Stephen Flaherty


Based Upon The Novel “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy


Direction by Angelisa Gillyard

About The Show

As the show opens, a child is terrified by a tropical storm and her community comes together to comfort her with a story.  On an island where people are separated by color and class, the four Gods (Earth, Water, Love and Death) place a bet.  A young girl leaves her humble upbringing to pursue her true love, the Prince, only to be faced with an impossible choice.  With Calypso-

flavored music and fantastical storytelling, Once On This Island is a celebration of hope and kindness that will nourish your soul.
