Once On This Island

Book & Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Based upon the novel "My Love, My Love" by Rosa Guy

Synopsis Summary

An enchanting musical fable, Once On This Island tells the story of forbidden love between two people from different worlds. Originally inspired by The Little Mermaid and Romeo & Juliet, this award-winning musical is set on an island in the French Antilles where social prejudices run deep and Caribbean music plays hot. Dazzling choreography, lush ballads and rousing choral numbers are certain to provide much needed warmth in the midst of a long, cold winter!

Appropriate for ages 6 and up. A great family show!

This production is 80 minutes in length and is performed without an intermission.

Once On This Island is presented though special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also authorized by MTI. 421 W. 54th Street, New York, NY, 10019, Phone: 212-541-4684, Fax: 212-397-4684, www.MTIshows.com
