About The Show

As the show opens, a child is terrified by a tropical storm and the 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.
