Watch as Ian Ferguson as Guy and Elizabeth Nestlerode as Girl perform Falling Slowly from Casa Mañana's production of Once! Check out the video.

The cast of actor-musicians play their own instruments to tell a compelling and immersive love story, underscored by emotionally charged music. The folk-rock score includes the Academy Award-winning song "Falling Slowly." Once runs March 2-10 and tickets are on sale now.

From the first note, Once draws you in and never lets go. This captivating musical is the only show to have music that won an Oscar, Grammy, Olivier and Tony Award. On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story. This achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all. This show is suitable for mature audiences due to strong language.

Once stars Ian Ferguson as Guy and Elizabeth Nestlerode as Girl, both of whom have led productions of Once before. Additional cast includes Adam Huel Potter as Billy, Bristol Pomeroy as Da, Laura Elizabeth Flanagan as Ex-Girlfriend, Jordan Bollwerk as Andrej, Trevor Lindley Craft as Svec, Julia Hoffmann as Reza, Joanne Borts as Baruska, Bridgette Packeer as Ivanka, Jennifer Smith as Bank Manager, Duke Anderson as Emcee and Travis Murad Leland as Eamon.

Once is directed and choreographed by Eugenio Contenti and music directed by Julia Hoffmann. Additional creative staff include J Branson as scenic designer, Samuel Rushen as lighting designer, Josh Liebert as sound designer, Tammy Spencer as costume designer and Catherine Petty-Rogers as hair and makeup designer.
