Once On This Island

Book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. Music by Stephen Flaherty. Directed by Miranda Harris (student) with musical direction by Bobby Taves (student). This show opens in Pfeiffer Hall on Thursday, February 23, and runs Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and closes Sunday at 2:00 p.m. 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.
