The Pax Amicus Castle Theatre in Budd Lake opens the musical ONCE ON THIS ISLAND on Friday, July 31 at 8pm. ONCE ON THIS ISLAND also performs Saturdays; August 1, 8 and 15 at 8pm; Fridays, August 7 and 14 at 8pm and Sundays, August 2 and 9 at 2pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

From the Tony Award winning songwriting team, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime), comes a story inspired from Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid. With a Caribbean tinged score, follow the story of Ti Moune as she goes on her quest to prove that love is stronger than death. ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a fairy tale celebration of love, hope, life and death. Directed/Musically Directed/Choreographed by Richard Boyer (Hairspray, Spamalot)

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. 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. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.

In the cast are: Amanda Boyer - Mama Euralie; Robinson Donazal - Tonton Julian; Olivia Clavel-Davis - Ti; Moune/Peasant Girl; Steven Munoz - Daniel/Beauxhomme/Daniel's Son; Joshua Boyer - Papa Ge, Demon of Death; Alison Bancroft - Asaka, Mother of the Earth; John Michael Villa - Agwe, God of Water; Victoria Lynn - Erzulie, Goddess of Love/Peasant Girl; Jeremy Doyle - Armand/Gatekeeper/Daniel's Father; Emily Boyer - Andrea/Madame Armand; and Annabella Ripatrazone - Little Girl/Little Ti Moune, with Storytellers/Peasants/Gossips/Guests: James Allen, Deja Guiterrez, Emma Mason and Karen Ripatrazone.
