Once On This Island


Directed by Dennis Mae, with student performers and creative staff of the Garrick Players


Performances: April, 25 @ 8 pm, April 26 and 28 @ 5 pm, and April 27 @ 3 pm.


Once On This Island, a 90 minute one-act musical set in the French Antilles, is based upon Rosa Guy's novel My Love, My Love and written by Flaherty & Ahrens the composers of "Ragtime" and "Seussical the Musical."


The show also includes elements of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; as well as the fairytale of "The Little Mermaid". The story concerns a peasant girl on a tropical island, who uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes.


This charming, magical musical has a serious message about racism that is overpowered through love.


Come enjoy the contemporary music, dancing, singing, mythical stories, love, and tragedy.
