ONCE ON THIS ISLAND

Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Music by Stephen Flaherty

Torie Wiggins, alumni guest director

TBA, music director

Based on the 1985 novel My Love, My Love; or The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy, a Caribbean-set retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Little Mermaid, this theatrical adaptation features music by CCM alumnus Stephen Flaherty (BM Composition, ’82). Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, and falls in love with him. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. This Tony Award-winning musical shares the epic story of a woman who travels far and wide to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
Estimated run time: 1 hour and 40 minutes, no intermission

Location: Patricia Corbett Theater

Tickets: $36 adult, $20 student, $15 UC faculty/staff, $10 UC student, $5 CCM student; group discounts available.
