Description

Directed by Eric Inman

Musical Direction by Pat Parr

Choreography by La Tonya Watts

Taking place on a Caribbean island divided by social prejudice, Once On This Island is a calypso-flavored musical re-telling of the traditional Little Mermaid tale. The show revolves around Ti Moune, a poor peasant girl, who falls in love with Daniel, an upper class boy whose life she saves after a car crash. Various gods control the peasants’ lives including the god of Love, Earth, Water and Death. This charming musical adventure focuses on the effects social class divisions have on love.
