"At each performance, there will be onstage seating, creating a unique experience within the footprint of every theater we play," says director Michael Arden. "Audiences will be invited to put their feet in the sand and surround our company, becoming part of the show. It's our goal to give all audiences a unique perspective of the communal nature of what theater can be in hopes that Once On This Island'S story of love, hope and forgiveness might inspire young minds and hearts all across the United States to lead their lives with compassion and empathy."
The tour will launch at The Carson Center for Performing Arts in Paducah, KY on October 12, 2019, followed by its official opening in Nashville, TN at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on October 15, 2019. Once On This Island will play over 25 cities in its first year on tour.
