Set in the French Antilles, this celebratory musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating, calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Olney's production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street's Hooper's Store since 1997. Learn More

A love story for our time and our youth: violent, jagged and dark, but pierced by beauty and hope. When the death of his father forces Eli to move from San Francisco to Iowa, he is hopelessly out of place in his new high school. Struggling with grief and the distance he feels from everyone, especially his mom, the attention of another boy may be just what Eli needs and far more than he can bear.
