ONCE ON THIS ISLAND
NEW LONDON HIGH SCHOOL
NEW LONDON HIGH SCHOOL - NEW LONDON, WI
original and theatrical
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a director/choreographer's dream, an intimate show presented in a dance/movement-driven style reminiscent of story theatre, with a small band and minimal - though colorful - sets and costumes that capture the imagination of the audience. Its catchy, contemporary, and Caribbean-flavored score by the Tony® Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (RAGTIME and the animated film Anastasia) includes tender ballads and rousing celebratory numbers for an ensemble cast of strong singers.
