"Once on This Island" is a timeless tale of love, resilience, and the power of storytelling. Through its rich narrative and soul-stirring music, the musical invites audiences to journey to a Caribbean island where disparate lives intersect, and where the lines between love and loss, hope and despair, are blurred. With its universal themes and powerful message, "Once On This Island" serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of sharing our stories to foster understanding and unity in our communities. The musical delves into the dynamics between the lighter-skinned, wealthier descendants of French colonizers (the "grand hommes") and the darker-skinned, poorer native islanders (the "peasants"). At its core, the story follows the journey of Ti Moune, a dark-skinned peasant girl, who falls in love with Daniel, a lighter-skinned grand homme. Ti Moune's love for Daniel challenges the societal norms and prejudices that divide their communities. Through her journey, we witness the intersections of race, class, and power dynamics on the island.

 

Once On This Island will run from August 1st-4th at the Keiter Center for the Performings Arts.
